Painting Workshops, Art Lessons & Art Instruction For Artists
Art Workshop Calendar
Welcome to our comprehensive Art Workshop Calendar. Please enjoy browsing and signing up for one of the many workshops available through our community. Or if you wish to post your own workshop, you can do this for USD$100 to be exposed to our valued community of over 50 000 people.
Notice: This feature is one of the most effective pages on the Painter's Keys site. For example, Carla O'Connor's Figurative Watermedia course in B.C.'s beautiful Pemberton Valley in May was sold out in a couple of days with folks travelling from as far away as Norway. We are most interested in helping qualified workshoppers fill their courses. As such, we reserve the right to reject some would-be advertisers and refund their money. This is also why we now charge $100 - to help ensure that only quality workshops are posted. In addition, every letter features a workshop to ensure that you will be seen by thousands.
If you have any questions, please email email@example.com
Thanks, and good luck with your workshop, whether you're giving or receiving, or both.
Sep 14, 2019 to Sep 15, 2019 - Mastering Skin Tones: Tiling & Edges
This workshop is foundational for all figurative painters, providing a tangible step-by-step system on how to create realistic skin tones, and apply them with ease to the portrait.
Emphasis is placed upon ‘tiling’ colours next to each other (darks, half-tones, lights) in a mosaic-like manner, and then refining edges to depict lifelike 3-dimensional form.
By the weekend’s end, you will have a finished portrait, and newfound confidence in adjusting colour while applying paint, all in one stroke!
