About This Workshop

5 day workshop with Academy of Realist Art Toronto Principal instructor Fernando Freitas. Fernando takes students through the stages of the Tenebrist approach to oil painting in this workshop. Similar to the much-loved “In the Studios of the Old Masters” workshop, this program teaches the chiaroscuro approach (which means light/dark, or light and shade) used by such artists as Rembrandt and Caravaggio. Working from a selected study, students learn the specific step-by-step process to achieve an exact copy, as well as gain a clear understanding of the principles of oil painting, and the best techniques and materials to use. This workshop is suitable for all levels of experience. The Director and Senior instructor at the Academy of Realist Art, Fernando Freitas has close to 20 years teaching experience. He also conducts drawing and painting workshops throughout North America and Europe, as well as works on portrait commissions. Most recently, his work can be seen on the hit NBC show 'Hannibal'. Lunch Included.
