Get Real! Realistic Portrait Painting with Marvin Mattelson

Marvin Mattelson, the par-excellence, award-winning classical oil portrait artist, will lead a Realistic Portrait Painting Workshop at BINDERS, July 6 -18, Monday through Saturday, 10am-5pm, for two consecutive weeks. The complete 12-day workshop also includes five evening lectures by Marvin.

The workshop fee of $1800 includes all lectures (schedule below) or $900 to audit all workshop sessions and lectures without painting in class.
