Oil Portrait Workshop

Oil Portrait Workshop with BAA teachers. The workshop in July will be taught by Painting Program Director Gerard Castellví

During two weeks, students will work with portrait models using oil paint. The attention will be concentrated on the posture and lighting of the model, establishing an harmonious composition with the gesture and mood of the model. The aim is to achieve a convincing representation of the portrayed person.


  • Develop the observation skills and technical capacity of the student.
  • Develop and apply critical thinking in portrait projects.
  • Inspire, develop and demonstrate the visual intention while painting the portrait, with a clothed figure.
  • Renew and expand the visual vocabulary of the student.
