"Portrait Painting"
August 11-14, 2022
 

Zhaoming’s understanding of classical techniques and superb draftsmanship has enabled him to paint in a loose manner and develop a unique style. In this 4-day workshop, Zhaoming will teach a traditional “painterly” technique of oil painting. It will be applied to portrait painting in an "alla prima” approach. Emphasis will be placed on composition, color, light and form. Students will be led into portrait painting practice by observing Zhaoming’s demonstrations along with individual instruction, and critiques. OSA is accepting a deposit of $400 with a $100 non-refundable fee for canceling contact the office to if you wish to make a deposit. Full payment due 60 days prior to the workshop.

"Painting From Life"
September 6-8, 2022
 

We will paint realistically in oils, using an all prima method (wet on wet). We will paint directly from a live model and very carefully observe the relationships of forms of the model. Our goal will be to create paintings that capture the three dimensional feelings of the space and forms that we actually see as well as the personality of the model posing. Each day there will be a demo and lecture, followed by students painting the rest of the time. Instructor will critique every student's painting 1 - 2 times each day. OSA is accepting a deposit of $300 with a $100 non-refundable fee for canceling. Full payment due 60 days prior to the workshop.
