Join Jennifer Gennari for a two-day oil painting workshop with Drawing America, located inside the historic National Arts Club. 

Each day begins at 10:00 am and finishes at 5:00 pm with a lunch break between 1:00 – 2:00 pm. 

In this two-day course, you will learn not only the traditional method of establishing value, and exploring color, but also what to look for in your subject that will breathe an extra bit of life into the portrait.

In this workshop we will work in an alla prima style where students will learn the stages of oil painting.  The process will be streamlined to expertly capture and maintain the strongest impression of the subject as possible, in the fastest time possible.

Students will be welcomed to the course with a painting demo and Q&A followed by a day of painting.  A nice balance will be maintained through the workshop of allowing the freedom to work and explore individually, and tight supervision so you’ll always feel comfortable and confident.

 Students will bring their own images of the portraits that they’d like to paint

The following is a list of materials Jen uses in her paintings. Students should try to get as many items as they can.
