Portrait Painting Master Class

Published on February 8, 2023

Join the ARC Approved® Princeton Academy of Art and Leon Okun for a week-long portrait painting master class. Okun's painting style merges the traditional European classical approach with the bold colors that Russian painters throughout history have been noted for.⁠ Students will be guided through Okun's method exploring the fundamentals and advanced nuances of temperature shifts, full-chroma color, and atmospheric perspective.⁠⁠

Emphasis will be placed on the analysis of planar forms and the relationship between the sitter and their environment. ⁠⁠Students of various backgrounds, techniques, and subject matter are encouraged to join this master class. A full-color palette is a powerful tool in the contemporary artist's kit when used in a balanced and informed way.⁠

The class runs from March 20-24, 2023 at the Princeton Academy of Art 138 Nassau Street, FL 2, Princeton, NJ 08542.

Tuition is $850.00 (50% due upon registration. Second half due 3/6/23)
