Painting the Figure in One Sitting
October 1-5
Monday–Friday, 9:00 am – 12:30 pm
Fee: $425
Instructor present each day
Enrollment limited to 12 students

This workshop is designed for those artists who want to learn how to paint a figure with cohesive flesh tones in loose brushwork on their canvas. The student will be introduced to a different way of seeing the figure, separating light, shadow, shapes, cool and warm colors, The workshop is based on an exercise that prepares a firm foundation for continued growth in painting, and by working from large areas to small, students will learn to control the value and colors of the images they will be painting.

Ismael Checo studied painting at Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes in Santo Domingo, the Arts Students League of New York, and as an apprentice in Andalusia, PA with Nelson Shanks. Later he was trained as a painting conservator in New York. His paintings explore a view of life that grows out of the Dominican/European influences that he has experienced. The human influences include irony, satire, and sarcasm. He views painting within the historical context of fine art. Since 1982, he has shown his work in many museum and gallery exhibitions. His paintings and drawings have been published in national and international books and magazines.
