Courses in traditional Drawing and Painting

Held in the vibrant environment of a working artist's studio.

May 4-6th 2019, mornings and afternoons

Teresa Oaxaca: Alla Prima Portrait

$450 model fees included

Very happy to announce Teresa’s return to the Waltham studio.  At this point, we have done many classes together over past years, and its always a pleasure to have her back to teach.
We decided it would be fun to refocus her next painting course on her one-shot Portrait technique.  We will work on the same pose each morning and afternoon, and Teresa will work with each individual student to develop an accurate likeness, with characterization and breadth of technique.

Each student can expect lots of personal attention from Teresa, who has years of experience sharing her techniques with students in this workshop format.
