Painting a Costumed Figure with Tanvi Pathare
During this workshop students will have the chance to paint colorful fabric, still life objects, and human skin while working from a live model. We will have the same set up for both weeks so applicants who sign up for both will have additional time to work on their painting.
This workshop, led by professional artist, Tanvi Pathare, with years of experience in teaching classical methods, is intended for those with a passion for realistic painting a strong desire to develop their artistic skills.
Most of the instruction is on an individual basis and Tanvi will adapt the exercises to your level of experience, which means that the course is suitable for both beginners and professional artists. In addition to the individual feedback, group lessons will be held. The skills you acquire during your course can be applied directly to your continued artistic endeavors.
