Greg Biolchini is a representational realist, painting portraits, figures, landscapes, still life, and nature. He works in both oils and pastels and has won numerous awards in both mediums. He has been a PSA Master pastelist since 1988 and has taught hundreds of workshops. Visit his website at www.biolchini.com.
Greg’s five-day workshop gives artists of all levels the opportunity to learn and review basics and then to take their work to a higher level. The five days give him more opportunity to see the work of each participant and to offer them individualized instruction, so even the most advanced artists will benefit and grow. He will emphasize studio painting from photographs and will demonstrate daily. He will demonstrate wet and dry underpainting techniques, but students have the option not to use them.
Cost for current non-members it is $425. Discounts will not be given if students opt to attend fewer days.
