3-day portrait painting workshop taught by artist Casey Childs focusing on building a stronger foundation in traditional portraiture. Students will work from a live model to create a convincing, lifelike portrait in oil. This workshop is open to artists with painting experience interested in improving their ability in traditional oil painting.

Students will create a portrait over the duration of the workshop from a live model. Technical instruction will be supplemented with brief lectures and demonstrations to learn Casey’s painting process. Casey will also assist students individually during the workshop.

Artists, ranging from intermediate level to advanced, will have the opportunity to work from a live model, and will receive one-on-one instruction gaining a fuller knowledge of traditional portraiture. This class is definitely not for the casual hobbyist but for the serious artist who wants to take his/her art career to the next level.

Class Description:

Students will work from a live model each day to create a convincing, lifelike portrait. The workshop will cover key concepts including planes of the head, light & shadow, shapes, values & edges, color mixing, use of oil painting medium, brush control, studio practices and proper use of materials.


Classes are open to artists, ranging from intermediate level to advanced, interested in taking his/her art career to the next level. The size of the group will be limited to 8 to optimize the learning experience so book fast.
