Arts in Rome is immensely pleased to receive Pau Marinello who will come to teach his remarkable oil painting techniques at our school. To enjoy the Workshop you need to be a Member of Arts in Rome Cultural Association. Read below how!

The Teaching Program:

The workshop takes place in three days and aims to develop a creative process with the student using colorful lights and background, dresses and special composition. The workshop therefore provides the Life Model and a place to be used ad-hoc for the creation of the painting.

On the first day Pau Marinello will explain how to create the composition;  later students will perform fast painting exercises from real on small canvases to study colors, shadows and lights focusing on color composition and big masses. The following days are for creating the definitive painting. At the end of the day I will do a short talk about diferent concepts. Photographic media will not be used.
