The Gluck Method is a step-by-step process of fine art instruction developed over the course of a quarter century by world-renowned artist and educator Larry Gluck. Using his method, tens of thousands who were previously unable to draw or paint have brought their dreams to life and can express themselves as artists.
Remember when you first learned to ride a bicycle? It looked almost impossible - how were you supposed to balance on those two thin wheels? Yet your friends made it look so easy.
Producing beautiful works of art can also appear almost impossible at first. True, the gifted few make it look easy, but what about the rest of us, those who weren't "born" with talent?
Let us first point out that practically every individual has a spark, a creative impulse. Perhaps that spark measures how alive we are, how much pleasure we find in observing and experiencing life and, in turn, imitating and interpreting it through the many and varied media we call art.
So, if you have already felt the impulse to create (and you probably wouldn't be reading this if you hadn't), the question is, how can you acquire that mythical substance otherwise known as talent? The answer lies in the instruction.
Imagine if you were taught to ride a bike sitting backwards, or without using the pedals; or worse, you didn't know what the handlebars were for. You wouldn't get very far. It's the same with drawing and painting. Yet there are apparently no rules - you hear it all the time: "Let it all hang out! Be spontaneous! Express yourself!" That doesn't help very much when you face a blank canvas.
