Students will receive live and individual instructions on how to produce oil painting reproductions based on the works of the most eminent Italian and Dutch painters of the baroque period, such as Frans Hals, Anthony Van Dyck, Peter Paul Rubens, Caravaggio, Rembrandt and others. Our program is specially designed so the student can easily learn the methods used by the Old Masters, starting from simple black and white exercises and gradually moving onto more difficult studies in color with a complex palette.

Some fundamentals discussed on class:
  • Color theory
  • Mixing strategies
  • Brush and tools handling
  • Paint and Pigment Composition and Properties
  • Vehicles and Mediums Properties

Students will work on their studios/homes while our instructor will show them how to paint in a step by step fashion. All students will need to set up a computer or cell phone pointing to the working area, preferably in a well lit area. A second phone or computer might be helpful so the student can use exclusively to see the instructor, while the first one is pointed at the working area.
