ASA 2016 Workshops

Oil Portrait Painting – The Bouguereau Method

Taught by Dino Massaroni,
March 21st through 25th

Dino Massaroni is a professional portrait artist and instructor with over forty years of experience. He has garnered countless awards in national, regional and local competitions and is known for his life–like portraits, plein air landscapes, and compelling still lifes. With a start–to–finish demo and one–on–one instruction, Dino will share proven techniques and methods that he’s acquired by studying the original paintings of William Bouguereau. Learn to achieve lifelike and luminous flesh colors, accurate tonal values, and precise drawing that are hallmarks of the work of Bouguereau.

“After many years of practice, I have developed what I feel is one of Bouguereau’s main procedures and I’d like to share those procedures with you!”
Five days, 9 am to 4 pm, for $695. A number of key materials are included in the workshop fee. Download full details here.
