Time:   10 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. 

Where:  The Patris Studio and Gallery

 3460 2nd Avenue, Sacramento, Ca 95817



Workshop Tuition:  $600 (includes model fees)  


What:  This workshop is about painting the figure and portrait alla prima (wet into wet) and the techniques used to create a fresh, direct response to our subjects.   


There will be painting demonstrations and lots of class time for students to work from a live figure and portrait model.  


The class will work on a different painting/pose each day of the workshop and learn to simplify and interpret the figure/portrait as a series of basic shapes and planes described by light and shadow. 


In addition to discussing technical concepts like value, color, paint application and basic proportions of the head and figure, we’ll also talk about some of the psychological aspects of learning to paint, such as giving ourselves permission to experiment and make mistakes so that we can learn and discover ways to become better, more creative artists.    


This class will be particularly helpful for those who want to expand from a tight painting style, to a more loose, economical paint application.
