Spring oil painting workshop!

I am excited for my next oil painting workshop, May 31st- June 2nd. I love teaching workshops and doing demos- there's just so much to say about painting! A description of my next 3 day workshop is below. If you are interested in registering or have any questions please email me at sara.sniderhan@gmail.com


Friday May 31st, 5:30pm- 9pm: I will do a 3 hour demonstration on painting a head study from life. Participants are welcome to ask questions, take notes and photographs or video throughout the demo. The demo will take place at the beautiful Ralph Thornton Centre, 765 Queen Street East (Queen and Broadview)

Saturday June 1st, 10am-5pm: Participants will paint a portrait or clothed figure study from a model. I will begin the day by demonstrating how to mix flesh/portrait palette and a brief discussion on composition. Each participant will have ample one-on-one instruction. This session will also take place at the Ralph Thornton Centre.

Sunday June 2nd, 11am- 5:30pm: We will spent this day painting a model outdoors. The focus will be on composition, landscape colour, creating a solid oil sketch of an entire scene and dealing with changing light. I am still scouting the location- however, I will make sure it is TTC accessible, has ample parking and a covered space in the chance of rain.

The cost of the workshop is $325.00 if you bring your own paint or $350.00 if I supply your paint. You are responsible for brushes and panels. I have 4 spare easels that are available to the first 4 participants who ask me for one.
