Explore narrative portraiture with intimate studio sessions with Donato Giancola. The four – day workshop is for the artist who aspires to pursue further development and refinement of their skills with the figure and as painters and storytellers. Focus will be placed upon creating a compelling portrait of a model within aspects of a narrative environment. Skill Level: Beginner to advanced.
Drawing on his twenty years of experience as a heavily awarded professional and teacher in the field of imaginative realism, Donato will lecture upon and share topics as diverse as marketing in commercial and fine arts marketplaces, color and compositional theory, the aesthetics of narration, and the physical application and techniques of working with oil paints, mediums and glazes. The workshop will include live demonstrations in drawing and oils as well as extensive visual lectures on the topics.
The small size of the class will ensure a highly focused environment and intense critique and studio work sessions with the artist. Graduating summa cum laude from Syracuse University with a BFA in Painting, Donato apprenticed for years as the studio assistant to the preeminent figurative painter, Vincent Desiderio. Currently, Donato teaches at the School of Visual Arts and the Illustration Master Class, exhibits at various galleries, and demonstrates and lectures at various universities, workshops and conventions across the country.
