online art workshop for teens and adults

Master the effects of glowing skin, soft shadows, silky hair and unforgettable eyes! Learn to use traditional oil painting technique of XVII century, leading your work from the grisaille underpainting to glazes.
This amazing technique can be applied to any genre of realistic painting. I am currently working on paintings of people riding subway: 
Old Masters - Man
Old Masters - Girls
Old Masters - Man with a Bag

It will be held ONLINE via ZOOM video conference. Students will need access to a computer / tablet / phone with internet connection and zoom.us. After the lecture and demonstrations teachers regularly check and correct the digital image of a student's work, explain what works in particular cases and what does not, and why.
