Academy Director and Senior Instructor Fernando Freitas takes students through the stages of the Ingres approach to oil painting in this 7 day workshop. Similar to the much-loved “In the Studios of the Old Masters” workshop, this program teaches the French Academic approach used by such artists as Jacques Louis David and his student Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres. Working from a selected study, students learn the specific step by-step process to achieve an exact copy, as well as gain a clear understanding of the principles of oil painting, and the best techniques and materials to use. This workshop is suitable for all levels of experience.
Group sizes are kept quite small, so each paticipant gets lots of one-on-one attention from our superb instructors. ARA instructors teach year round so, unlike many artists who offer summer/holiday workshops our instructors are professional teachers as well as successful award-winning artists Whether you are an award winning experienced artist or have never painted before, our instructors will tailor to your skill level.
Most workshops are scheduled five days per week, Monday to Friday, with weekends free (unless otherwise noted). The hours are usually 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., but will occasionally go to 5:00 p.m.
