Ann Jenson, Vertumnus original by Giuseppe Arcimboldoby

ArtRoster Art Atelier is a group of Northern California artists who reside at the base of Mt. Shasta. Most of the group has enjoyed art making in a variety of media for many years, and within the last few years their love of painting has brought them together creating, exploring and exhibiting.

Meeting weekly, they draw inspiration from art history, their natural environment, and each other as well as their painting instructor Aleksander Balos. The artists utilize techniques from the Old Masters atelier system of the great European academic and impressionistic painting schools of the 18th and 19th centuries. Our lineage goes directly to Jacques-Louis David.
