John Howard Sanden Student Portrait Collection of 20 Silver Brushes - John Howard Sanden Student Collection
The critical year in John Sanden's personal history was 1969 - the year he decided to leave the Midwest and a long career in Christian art, and try his hand at New York City and the world of portrait painting. Within months of arriving in New York, he was appointed to the teaching faculty of the Art Students League, had become affiliated with the city's principal portrait brokerage, Portraits, Incorporated, and had established a nationwide portrait clientele of the famous, wealthy and influential. Sanden there upon launched into an ambitious teaching career. He founded The Portrait Institute in 1974 and began touring the nation, teaching his ideas and techniques to thousands, who came out to hear him in classes as large as seven hundred at a time. Those who could not come in person studied through one of the national correspondence instructional programs, which he created. In 1979, Sanden launched the National Portrait Seminar, which grew to be the largest art seminar program in America. An annual lecture series at the Art Students League was presented to standing-room-only audiences there for twenty-three years.
