Instructor Fernando Freitas takes students through the stages of the Tenebrist approach to oil painting in this seven day workshop. Similar to the much-loved “In the Studios of the Old Masters” workshop, this program teaches the chiaroscuro approach (which means light/dark, or light and shade) used by such artists as Rembrandt and Caravaggio. 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.
