Workshop: Portrait Painting in Oils with master artist Teresa Oaxaca, Oct. 22-23

Art House 7

5537 Langston Blvd

Arlington, Virginia 22207 Map

Event Info

Teresa Oaxaca is a stand-out talent, both as painter and teacher. Nashville Arts Magazine wrote that “probing the highly imaginative, inspired mind of Teresa Oaxaca is not altogether unlike having a present-day conversation with an Old Master.” Join her for two full days of instruction, inspiration and feedback.

Class will start with two portrait painting demonstrations by Teresa for 3 hours each morning. After the demonstrations, students will be painting from life with a clothed live model. You may expect art talks and individualized critiques that will focus on materials, techniques, process, and artistic vision.  The class will also cover the palette with brush/palette knife color mixing. The idea is to get you jazzed up about painting, point you critically in the right directions and help you on an individual level as well. Limited to 15 students.

2-Day Workshop

Sat., Oct 22 & Sun. Oct. 23. 10am-4pm
$250
