The Judge

@jeffreywattsart is a fine artist, and educator. He is well known in the art community for starting a figurative fine art school in Encinitas, California called the Watts Atelier. At his school, they focus primarily on teaching the Riley Method. A method of drawing that focuses on how the rhythms of the body can be used to find gesture and proportion. The Watts Atelier is where Stan learned to draw, and Jeff was Stan's primary art instructor while he attended.

Jeff is also an accomplished painter and draftsman. He has been recognized by the Taos Art Museum and Fechin House for carrying on Fechin's legacy. He has also won awards from Artist's Magazine, the Salon International Exhibition, and the Portrait Society of America just to name a few. Jeff is a living master, and we are lucky to have him as a judge. Good Luck!
