Jump Into Oil Painting!

Instructor: Katalin Tolgyesi 
Monday-Wednesday 9:30AM-11:30PM
Tuition: $130
Location: Marbleworks

 

This is a 3-day painting workshop especially for teens! Students will work with artist and instructor Katalin Tolgyesi as they dive into mastering portraiture through the oil paint medium! Students will choose reference photos, transfer outlines to canvas, block in the values, and study the lighting in the reference. Key elements will be covered in learning to mix values, tones, highlights, then how to add subtle value and color variations to make a portrait or any subject come to life.

Katalin will guide students through overcoming some of the most common mistakes made by beginner painters and break down the process of completing a work into easy-to-understand phases. Students will leave with a finished artwork, an understanding of the oil painting process, and specific skills they can transfer to future projects. All levels/Ages 13-17
