Portrait Painting Demonstration with Philip Salamone
Fri, May 19, 2023| 4-6pm | Deadline to register: May 15 by 4pm
Join instructor Philip Salamone of Atwood Atelier as he sets up in the studio for a live portrait demonstration. Philip will have a live model on site, and students can observe as he walks through the fundamentals of capturing the human figure. This is a demonstration, meaning Philip will discuss his process as he paints, though students will not be following along making their own paintings. However, anyone in attendance is welcome to bring a small sketchbook to sketch or take notes. Philip will answer live questions during the event and point out key processes.
Beginners are welcome! This demonstration is great for emerging artists wanting to explore drawing, or established artists wanting to take their portraiture to the next step.
There are no required materials to bring along, though you may bring a sketchbook and pencils/charcoal if you’d like to sketch along with Philip.
About the Instructor: Philip Salamone
“I was born in Madison and raised in central Wisconsin. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Madison in Fine Arts and, seeking a classical understanding of painting from life, moved to New York to study at the Grand Central Atelier. After completing the three year program, in addition to study at the Art Students League, I returned to Madison to paint and to teach. In an effort to build a community, to learn from other artists, and to routinely practice painting from the figure, I rented a studio and started offering classes, workshops, and open studios. I now teach at both Madison College, and also at my school, the Atwood Atelier.”
