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)

Dan Graziano is an award winning, nationally exhibited artist whose paintings capture the hidden beauty found in the unexpected places and fleeting moments of everyday life. Incorporating dramatic light, shadow, color and perspective, his urban compositions feature the visual diversity of time worn buildings and multiple layers of decay, renewal and adaptation which proudly display the effects of time as well as the qualities of strength and authenticity.
