ANNOUNCEMENT—Art of the Masters classical oil painting workshop, plus free additional day.
Karen Schmeiser and I are carrying on Maestro Frank Covino’s legacy by teaching workshops here in the Phoenix Metro. It was an important decision for us, and since each of us have studied with Frank for over twelve years and we both love teaching, we honor his memory by doing our part to assure that these Old Master techniques do not get lost.
- Learn to paint like the Old Masters.
- Receive the expertise of two instructors (Marsha Gilliam and Karen Schmeiser) as you learn the methods of the Old Masters in a 5-day workshop, June 27-July 1, 2016 Open to artists of all levels. Get more instruction for your money.
- Cost: $489. If you check the prices of art workshops these days, you will find they cost nearly twice as much. A supply list will be provided upon registration.
- Also included at no extra charge is a free preparation day on June 20, 2016, to help you properly begin your drawing on your painting panel.
YOU can do this! The three most important things to bring with you are your patience, your determination, and an accepting mind. Here are examples of what you can expect to achieve:
First painting by Karen Schmeiser:
Copy of The Shepherdess, 1866, after Johann Baptist Hofner
First painting by Marsha Gilliam:
Copy of Girl with a Pearl Earring, 1665, after Johannes Vermeer
The author and associate editor of the East Valley Tribune, Srianthi Perera, recently published this article about our upcoming workshop, and there is also an article about it just released in The Gilbert Sun News https://issuu.com/timespub/docs/gsn_june_2016_issue:
We hope you will join us–it was a life-changing experience for us, and we hope it will be for you, too.
Marsha and Karen
