Based on the Power of Positive Painting© method, with Robert Maniscalco: Robert will teach you to think like a painter. He presents a short drawing/painting lesson at the beginning of each session. Students may work in any medium and subject. Rob will provide/suggest reference material as necessary. We will set goals together and tailor the work to the individual needs of the student. Goals can be as broad as mastering an idiom like portraiture or landscape. Or they can be as specific as learning to develop a greater variety of edges in oil painting. Honest observation will be the key. The instruction will be tailored to allow for a deepening of the individual’s unique approach and response to the project at hand. Expect lots of individual attention here. These small group classes will be at the artist’s studio at 5440 Ansley Trail, North Charleston 29418.

“HOW TO GET A HEAD” A PORTRAIT PAINTING WORKSHOP
WITH ROBERT MANISCALCO
2021 TBA

The two day portrait painting intensive workshop we will explore value-based “light on form” painting methods to create high integrity, expressive portraits. Using live models, the focus will be on gaining a deeper understanding of observable values to achieve form, character and likeness. We will paint one finished portrait in our two days together. Robert will also present a few salient drawing and painting exercises in the morning sessions.

Power of Positive Portrait Painting Workshop 2 days (non-members)

Robert will teach you to think like a painter, presenting a short demo, paint-along. Honest observation and careful analysis of forms will be the key. Concrete, practical application, rather than meaningless theory, will be the order of the day. The instruction will be tailored to allow for a deepening of the individual’s unique approach and response to the subject at hand. Expect lots of individual attention and nothing less than a major epiphany regarding how the subtle manipulation of light on form actually works in depicting realistic subjects. See class and workshop description for more of what we’ll be discovering together. All levels are encouraged to participate. Expect lots of individual attention here. (843) 486-3161.
