New! Painting in Oil: Master Study Workshop

June 28, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Learn From The Old Masters

In this workshop, students will create one or more oil painted Master Studies. Join us while we learn about oil painting, techniques, and study the Old Master’s methods.

Attendees will choose the subject of their choice, from Floral, Still Life, Portrait, Figurative, or Landscape. Prior to class we will send you a selection of wonderful paintings to choose from. The selection will all be images from the Public Domain and all high quality paintings from Master Artists. Once you chose your piece we will get a high quality print made for you to use as your reference.

The Studio will guide each student through an easy and comprehensible step by step process to recreate a masterpiece.

We will not just be “copying for copying’s sake”, but rather making a Study. This means that we will be studying the reference artwork to find out how the Artist used drawing, values, composition, and color to make the masterpiece. Studying the Old Masters is one of the BEST ways to learn drawing and painting.


Thursdays 5:30-8:30pm June 21st- July 19th


Example Masterworks


Why Master Copies

Making Master Studies, or Master Copies, is one of the oldest methods of Fine Art education. The Old Masters became that way by studying and learning from their predecessors. It is one of the best ways to learn and  master techniques, composition, design, and much much more.

Through careful study of the master’s paintings we can follow in the footsteps of their brush strokes. Together we will discover the secrets of the Old Masters.

Students are highly encouraged to bring their artworks home for further development in between class sessions.
