Jennifer Gennari Live Workshop Demo

This video was shot during a live weekend workshop with Jennifer Gennari. The demo covers the entire process of making the painting. We have included three short videos where Jennifer explains how she tones her canvas and the paints and brushes she uses. The video quality of this lesson is good, but please be advised there are some glare issues on the canvas later in the video. We do our best when recording live and believe there is a tremendous amount of value for viewers. We hope you enjoy it!

Instructor's Biography

Jennifer Gennari is a classically trained artist. She graduated in 2005 from Ringling College of Art and Design and in 2008 left for Italy to study at the Florence Academy of Art where she spent three years abroad studying classical realism under Daniel Graves.

Jennifer has been painting animals since 2014 and is driven by a deeply rooted passion to elevate and legitimize the life we have with them. Jennifer is one of the first contemporary artists to focus entirely on animal painting, and the first to spotlight the Alla Prima method centered on capturing animals with the life, drama, and integrity of a traditional human portrait. There is a breath of individual emotion and personality inside each portrait as if their soul was captured within the paint. Her work is the definition of Labor of Love.

Jennifer has also written a book on drawing the human figure, has hosted an online class through Craftsy that instructs beginners on the techniques used in creating a traditional portrait in charcoal, and is presently teaching an ever growing class on animal portraiture through Drawing America.  

Jennifer’s work has been used in television shows and movies, and has received multiple awards and honors.
