Joshua Larock

Portrait Painting - January 13th-15th, 2018


Capturing a likeness is among the most elusive yet emotionally satisfying of artistic endeavors.  In this workshop Joshua will walk students through the steps necessary to create a luminous, in-direct portrait painting from life.

Instruction and critiques for this workshop will center around the elements of form and how to achieve the illusion of three-dimensions.  By better understanding the importance of form the student will gain new insight into value, color, drawing and expression.

Joshua will be demonstrating the in-direct approach to oil painting. This is distinct from the alla-prima, or wet-in-wet, method in that it is done in layers and can therefore achieve wonderful and subtle effects by the use of semi-transparent veils of paint.

Michael Klein

Flower Painting - September 22th-24th, 2017


This workshop will cover how I approach a floral painting from life. Due to the fleeting subject matter, I will walk the students through my entire process. Each morning will be spent discussing basic principles of the block-in and getting the gesture of the flowers from a live demonstration.  From there, I will show you on your own work how to plan several steps ahead in your painting to achieve the highest level of finish throughout the course. There will be emphasis given to developing the painting combining the use of optical observation and conceptual form rendering techniques.

Louis Carr

Child Portrait Painting - February 11th-13th, 2018


Painting portraits of children can be  challenging not only because of their subtle features but also because of their tendency to move.

Join Louis as he guides you through his process of painting children. He will demonstrate in the morning painting a child from life. After the demo you will all practice painting from life as he makes his way through the room giving individual instruction. Louis  will go through tips and tricks that help you navigate through the difficulties of a child's pose while trying to capture children’s likenesses and color from life. There will be discussions about child’s structure and how to capture their subtle identifying markers, as well as pitfalls that people usually have when painting children. There will also be talks on the concept of form and color, as well as effectively using visual aids.
