ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
This weekend workshop will feature a model in costumed clothing and a setting that implies a narrative. After posing and lighting the model, Woolley will show students how to begin. Students will then start their own work, with Woolley giving individualized instruction easel-to-easel. Throughout the workshop there will be mini-demonstrations covering relevant topics such as getting the right proportions, color theory and mixing good skin tones, and how to paint the varied textures found in the costume and setting.
There will be a group critique with refreshments at the end of each day.
Suitable for all levels. Ages 15+

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Lois Woolley is an award-winning painter who specializes in portraiture. She approaches every commission with warmth and sensitivity. She paints each person with the goal of revealing the things they like best about themselves. Her style combines traditional realism with rich, impressionistic color. Lois’s passion for art and portraiture began during her childhood, which was spent near Washington, DC. Her family encouraged her talent with frequent visits to the city’s art museums, and summer classes at the Corcoran Gallery. Lois moved to New York when she was eighteen to continue her education at the Art Students League. She has studied with Robert Beverly Hale, Robert Brackman, Daniel Greene, David Leffel, and Hongnian Zhang. These teachers have had the greatest influence on the development of her talent and style. In 2000, she co-authored The Yin-Yang of Painting, which presents Zhang’s color theory, palette and methods. For more information about Wooley, click here.
