This weekend ARTiculations is going back to school to brush up on all-things-oil-paint!
Last night, we kicked off the weekend early by attending a lecture by artist Juan Martinez The Materials of Oil Painting: What Every Painter Needs to Know at The Academy of Realist Art. It was an information-packed lecture and demonstration that concentrated on paints and mediums used in oil painting, as well as grounds, surfaces, textiles and varnishes.
Tonight We are very pleased to have technical director and co-founder of Natural Pigments, George O’Hanlon here with us for a Lecture and Demonstration on Traditional Oil Painting Materials and Mediums tonight once again at The Academy of Realist Art. Tomorrow begins our 2 day Technical Workshop with George at ARTiculations on Painting Best Practices
