ARTE VERISSIMA* Presents:

CLASSICAL PORTRAIT PAINTING WORKSHOP


Instructor: Andrew Ameral

LEARN TO PAINT AND DRAW LIKE THE OLD MASTERS


WORKSHOP BEGINS: OCTOBER 11, 2010


This three week intensive workshop will give students an opportunity to expand their knowledge and experience rendering a human portrait, from life, in oil paint.

Sound academic techniques I learned and taught at the Florence Academy of Art will be introduced. Students will be divided into groups of three. Each group will have their own live model, holding a single pose throughout. Students will have the opportunity to work from a variety of viewpoints to obtain a fully finished and accurate representation within the range of their experience and ability.

A number of lectures and demonstrations will be given focusing on better understanding the anatomy and the construction of the human head and its features. The sight size method and the limited palette will be introduced. Stages of the classical painting process will be explained and practiced.

This workshop is open to all advanced and beginning students who want to improve.
