Price: 875 Euros, 50% non-refundable deposit due at time of registration. That price includes model fees. Students are responsible for their own airfare and accommodations. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or Laura at The Florence Studio, email@example.com to register
About the workshop: This is a back to basics, oil painting, portrait class working from a live model.
All skill levels are welcome from beginning to advanced. We will spend the first two days working on drawing, value and color mixing. The last three days we will put it all together in a painting of a single pose. I will give step-by-step demonstrations and individual easel to easel critiques.
Most of all it's going to be fun!
