Skill Building Challenge Cycle 19 Winners Announced!


Cycle 19 Winners Announced!

Our Cycle 19 skill Building Challenge, structured to celebrate the release of our Features and Facial Expressions lessons with Lucas Graciano,  proved to be a unique challenge for students..Not only did participants have to pull from their portraiture skills, they also needed to utilize their own reference and work to incorporate expressive features into their pieces. Everyone who participated impressed us with their dedication to this challenge, and we’d like to offer our congratulations to all the participants for their hard work and effort. Choosing our winners was difficult, but in the end, our team chose the two they felt best captured the emotions  (both subtly and overtly) and the best display of skill and improvement.  Without further ado, please join us in congratulating our winners…







Congratulations to the both of you!  Our skill Building challenges will be taking a bit of a break over the holidays as we catch up with our rewards for our winners (thank you all for your patience) and finalize our plans for a very special 20th Skill Building Cycle, one that will kick off the start to our Master Skill Building Challenge with Donato Giancola. 

Happy Holidays to you all, and best of wishes to you and your loved ones in the New Year!

-The Watts Atelier Team
