Gary Faigin teaches several specialized drawing and painting weekend and week-long workshops each year at the Gage facility on Capitol Hill in Seattle, and at remote locations around the Northwest. With workshops focused on drawing the head, portrait painting, still life painting, and landscape painting in oil, Faigin offers the beginning to intermediate artist strategies for developing a pictorial idea,  building an image and maximizing their tools and media to best effect. In every workshop, Faigin presents daily lectures and demonstrations, delivering art training that is accessible to art students at all levels of expertise.

Portrait Painting 
2018 date tbd
Explore alla prima portrait painting — direct brushstrokes of pre-mixed colors on canvas — as you complete two oil paintings from distinct portrait models. Learn the practical steps to achieving a convincing resemblance of the model, from preparing your canvas and setting up your palette to the fundamental stages of blocking-in your portrait and developing the facial forms through a clear understanding of light and shade. The final two days are focused on painting the essential facial features all critical to describing the specific qualities of your sitter while you complete two memorable portraits with confidence and skill.
