Secrets from the Masters Series — Flesh Tones & Portraits

June 2, 3 &4 , Craig Srebnik, $265 for members - $295 for non-members, 9:00-4:00

Craig’s sinuous, romantic figures are reminiscent of the timeless beauty of Classical and Baroque Masters, combined with the light, atmosphere and expressive brushwork of contemporary Impressionism. At this three day event, Craig will introduce and demonstrate his methods — the “Secrets” used by Classical through contemporary figure painting Masters. Craig's packed evening demonstration at OSA was a perfect introduction to how he teaches. Look for a complete description online. Open to artists of all levels. Demonstrations are in oil.
