POWAY OIL PORTRAITS
UNDERSTANDING THE CRAFT BEHIND OIL PORTRAIT PAINTING
POWAY OIL PORTRAITS
Poway Oil Portraits is an Art Painting Studio located in Poway California. Our mission is to make you a better painter with each painting opportunity. Anybody interested in painting is welcome to take a class with us.
Painting is better understood with practice. Whether this is your first time holding a brush or one of many, the aim will be the same across all levels… paint, paint and paint.
Classes are scheduled between 9am and 12noon, from Monday to Saturday. Weekdays are better suited for adults. Saturdays for kids 12 and over during school year.
There will be 2018 summer classes for kids. Call or text for schedule.
Our objective would be to keep you always motivated. One way to achieve this is with the creation of manageable tasks that are simple to comprehend and comfortable to execute.
Once you get familiar with the studio tools, you will move on to work with small painting exercises which are designed to get you familiar with the painting process.
We will use comparison analysis in combination with painting demonstrations at all stages of the painting process. With this strategy you'll be able to identify with clarity and replicate consistently the elements and techniques that are important to figurative painting.
I am Cheto... pronounced Che t + to e. Graduated from Cornell University. Enjoy Architecture and Art History.
There are two ways to learn how to paint. One is by trial and error and the other one is with a purpose. I have tried the first approach before and felt that I never learn how to paint. Four years ago, I dusted my old Art History books and found myself attracted to the works of the Golden Era in Painting. The 1600's.
Something became very clear to me, this generation of painters painted with a purpose. Many technological advances were happening and these painters took among themselves the quest to perfect The Craft Of Oil Painting.
Would you like to understand this beautiful craft? If so, please do it with a purpose. Feel free to visit my studio and let's talk. I'll be looking forward for the opportunity to help you achieve your painting goals?
