About the Workshop
This workshop will focus on helping students develop the tools needed to foster an understanding that the subject dictates how the painting should start and progress to completion.
Students will bring their own small to medium canvas, oil or acrylic paints (choose colors you are comfortable working with), brushes, stand up easel and stand or table. Any solvents or mediums used pertaining to oil painting should be odorless and non toxic.
About the Instructor
Nationally known Bay Area teacher, artist, and colorist Elio Camacho will help you build a strong foundation for your painting in this one day workshop! The workshop is structured for beginners through advanced students and includes demos, hands-on participation, and instruction in your choice of oil or acrylic still-life painting at the easel.
This workshop will focus on helping students develop the tools needed to foster an understanding that the subject dictates how the painting should start and progress to completion. As a painting instructor, my mission is to provide students with the foundation necessary to be creative. My workshops are very hands-on, with an emphasis on easel-side critiques. I believe that giving instruction is important, but showing students how this instruction applies to their individual work is crucial. Based on the student’s level and goals, I develop a program for improving each individual’s ability as a painter.
