Alumni Update: Katie Runyu





If you're in Tennessee, don't miss out on Angel Academy Alumna Katie Runyu's Master's of Fine Art Thesis Exhibition! Runyu studied at the AAA from 2009-2014. She has been awarded first place for the ARC scholarship, and was an ARC figure and drawing finalist. 

Katie Runyu's work at the Angel Academy

Katie Rune's First Still Life at the Academy

Katie is on the Memphis College of Art Presidents List, the honor roll for graduate students, and will graduate this May with a Masters of Fine Arts in Painting & Drawing.


Katie's Thesis is titled, The Effects of Air Pollution in Beijing, China:A Visual Discussion.
This thesis is centered on the realities of how the high levels of air pollution in Beijing has impacted the daily lives of its residents, and is depicted in a series of oil paintings representing the air pollution in Beijing.

The painting style is strongly influenced by JW Turner and J Whistler to create an appropriate misty effect, combining the painting techniques of the Angel Academy and glazing. Runny has heavily researched Turner and Whistler to accurately create a smoggy atmosphere. 


The show will be in the Marshall Arts Gallery from April 7 - 28 in Memphis, Tennessee! 

Congratulations on your hard work and your exhibit, Katie!!!

Student Life: Long Pose Color



From the seventh term onwards, students begin long poses with the live model, painted in color. Each student paints a pose with Maestro Michael John Angel and Jered Woznicki as their individual instructors. 

In the photo, William Yeats Irhig has begun to render his painting, putting final textures, values, colors, and details in place.
