One-Day Oil Painting Workshop with Dan Graziano
Whether you’re picking up a brush for the first time or returning to art after being away from the easel, this workshop is designed to be both informative and fun. Beginning with a discussion on the “basics” of oil painting (from materials to paint handling), the workshop will also address the fundamentals of color, value, edges and perspective. Learn how to develop a loose, expressive and “painterly” quality in your paintings!
Instruction will include a short painting demo by Dan, with explanation of his process along the way. Participants will then work from a still life to paint quick studies that incorporate the techniques discussed, with plenty of one-on-one individual instruction throughout the day. Supplies not included – please see suggested supply list below.
Fee: $95.00 ($85.00 RTA members)
