Starting Methods for Beginning Portraiture with Tina Garrett

Friday- Sunday, April 13-15, 2018 Tuition: $350 plus $35 model fee
(All levels)

Village Arts of Putney is excited to add the delightful and extraordinarily talented, Tina Garrett from Missouri, to our slate of wonderful teachers in Spring 2018!

All levels are welcome to participate in this comprehensive study of oil painting starting methods with ARC (Art Renewal Center) Associate Living Master, Tina Garrett, including, open grisaille, accurate color wash, and Tina’s favorite, selective start. Students will learn to understand form, value, temperature, edges and composition as well as color mixing. She will demonstrate how to control your palette for accurate values and color and provide insights on posing the model, lighting and painting materials. Tina will demonstrate from the live model each morning and assist artists individually each afternoon and will share her philosophy on painting from photographs vs. painting from life.
