Elio Camacho
As a painting instructor, my mission is to provide students with the foundation necessary to be
creative. My goal is to assist students in capturing the particular mood of the moment and to express themselves in a bold and colorful way, while capturing the beauty and spontaneity of nature.

Workshop Philosophy
Elio's workshops are very hands on, with an emphasis on easel side critiques. He believes that
givi ng instruction is important, but showing students how this instruction applies to their
individual work is crucial. Based on the
student’s level and goals, he develop a program
for improving each individual’s ability as a

Method of Instruction:
• Demos
• Hands On
• Instruction at the Students Easel
• Group Critiques

Elio Camacho is currently represented in galleries throughout
the United States.

“The works have a looseness and spontaneity that goes beyond just rendering every detail.”
