5-day portrait painting workshop taught by artist Casey Childs focusing on building a stronger foundation in traditional portraiture. Students will work from a live model to create a convincing, lifelike portrait in oil. This workshop is open to all artists interested in improving their ability in traditional oil painting.


Students will create two portraits over the duration of the workshop from a live model. Technical instruction will be supplemented with brief lectures and demonstrations to learn Casey’s painting process. Casey will also assist students individually during the workshop.


Artists, ranging from beginning to advanced, will have the opportunity to work from    a live model, and will receive one-on-one instruction gaining a fuller knowledge of traditional portraiture. This class is definitely not for the casual hobbyist but for the serious artist who wants to take his/her art career to the next level.
