Event Details


with Corey Pitkin
Most oil paintings are not completed in a single day, but in layers over a series of painting sessions. Over the course of 3 one-day workshops, instructor Corey Pitkin will show students how he creates a finished portrait with oil paint in this method. Demonstrations will include composing the painting, creating a drawing and transferring it to the painting surface, constructing an underpainting, glazing and scumbling, and much more. This workshop is best for students who already have some experience with oil painting and want to take their work to another level. Students will be painting from a provided photograph and will be given feedback and guidance.

Sundays, October 6, 13, & 20: 10am – 4pm

$160 for members / $170 for non-members
