COMPLEX COMPOSITIONS WITH NICHOLAS O’LEARY
In this weekend workshop award-winning artist Nicholas O’Leary will walk students through his process for creating complex, multi-figure compositions from concept to finished painting. Participants will get the chance to have a behind-the-scenes look at how these types of paintings are created. They will learn about how to conceptualize an idea and what tools they will need to transfer that idea to an image. In addition to demos and presentations, Nicholas will have the students create their own compositions as he guides them through early steps of crafting an image. With some practical tips and guidance, students will better be able to make their ideas into a reality.
Nicholas is a New Zealand native who lives in Bergen, Norway. He is a winner of several awards including the Art Renewal Center’s prestigious William Bouguereau Award.
Some drawing and painting materials will be provided. A list of additional materials will be sent to those who sign up.
