Portrait Workshop

To Be Announced
Student level: Intermediate to Advanced
Cost: $525
We will be offering a three day workshop by Warren Chang, Signature Artist member of the California Art Club, Master Signature member of the Oil Painters of America and author of the recently published book Narrative Paintings by Warren Chang. The 3-day portrait painting workshop will emphasize working in a monochromatic oil wash, or underpainting, on the first day followed by instruction with an extended limited palette the remaining days. Focusing on an oil wash will help enable an artist to first familiarize themselves with the oil medium while working on controling drawing, values, edges and brush strokes. Students will then master the mixing of color and control of color harmonies on following days. Warren will do demonstrations on the first two days of the workshop.
