1-6 PM Saturday and Sunday (Eastern US Time, Washington D.C.)
August 13-14, 2022
This will be an online class held on Zoom that will require you to paint along from home. There will be two portrait painting demonstrations with a model for you to work from, as well and art talks and individualized critiques that will focus on materials, techniques, process and a artistic vision. The class will be broadcast live from the studio of Teresa Oaxaca, featuring multiple camera angles on the painting as it is created, the palette with brush/palette knife color mixing, as well as the visual reference.
An inspirational Q & A session will also be included. The idea is to get you jazzed up about painting, point you critically in the right directions and help you on an individual level as well.
Upon registration you will receive more information about the class. Supply List will be added soon. Please note thst it is not necessary for you to purchase all new supplies, and those wishing to work in acrylics or termpera are also welcome (though please note that this is an oil painting class).
Technical Requirements- Some kind of computer, laptop, tablet or any other device on which you can access the internet. A digital camera (smart phone will also do).

It is also necessary to have speakers and a webcam on your device, as the lessons will be live and spoken word will be the main vehicle of communication. Video demonstrations and some text will also be included, and you will have the option to type in questions a well as speak.
