4 Day Oil Painting Workshop (Portrait)

WITH FINE ARTIST JESS LE CLERC

Currently running one of Australia's largest private art schools with nearly 600 weekly students, Jess has established herself not only as a professional art teacher with over 20 years experience, but also as an award wining artist. This combination of both artist & teacher is what sets Jess and her workshop apart.

Having also attended workshops around the world by other professional artists including Casey Baugh, David Kassan, Shana Levenson and Robin Eley, Jess will be including some of the tips and tricks she has learnt from these, and other incredible artists. 

WORKSHOP INFO:

In this comprehensive 28hr oil painting workshop, students will learn techniques and skills that Jess has gathered as an emerging Australian portrait painter and teacher. Students will complete a portrait painting from photograph over 4 days, receive daily demos and step by steps from Jess whilst being given guided individual tuition.

Students will learn how to paint with three modes; value, temperature and perspective.

Students will be equipped with understanding of how to design the style of a portrait, how to make an underdrawing, understanding what is important in an underpainting, and how to complete a full colour portrait with an individual style, not a copied style.

Students won't be using projection for portraits but rather Jess will be teaching her proven method of getting perspective by hand & eye.

These workshops are suited for all levels of artists.
