I will be returning to Atlanta for my annual two-week workshop at Binders Art Supplies and Frames in the fashionable Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta GA. If you’ve enjoyed my blog thus far, you may want to consider what effect a full two-week live avalanche of nonstop information would be like. Pretty smokin’ stuff! (Some say it’s the reason Atlanta gets so hot in July. Not to worry, Binders classrooms are very comfortably air-conditioned.) You can read much more about the portrait artist workshop on my site.
In the workshop, not only will I be espousing my methodologies, unconventional wisdom, and unbridled humor, but I’ll be demonstrating every step I take and every move I make with full explanatory commentary. The painting above is a portrait demo I did last year of Catherine Pica, our model. It’s not finished up to my normal portrait commission standards (not enough time for that) but it gets across exactly how to build up a portrait. I feel that watching demonstrations and then applying the techniques yourself makes for the most powerful learning experience.
You can also read what others have said about my portrait artist workshops here. Once there, you can follow the links at the top this window and click on "teaching" and see lots of other interesting distractions.
There’s still space available. I’d love to see you there, but if you can’t make the full workshop I’ll be giving a series of lectures which you can sign up for separately. Of course if you take the workshop the lectures are free. Hope you can make it. It will be a blast.
Marvin Mattelson is now conducting his classes and workshops online in Full HD 1080p through his Fine Art Portrait Academy. For further information, or to register for an upcoming offering, please follow this link to his teaching page.
Until next time…
