Portraiture in Oils with Thanh Tam CAo


“In art, there is nothing that cannot be redeemed, there isn’t any situation that cannot be recorded and beautifully emphasized in a drawing or painting, whatever the subject may be.”

This two day workshop will be an intense crash course on how to record a likeness in oils. Thanh is immensely gifted in breaking down the architecture of the face, managing to maintain a looseness to his brushwork whilst still portraying an accurate likeness of his subjects. The workshop will involve sketching as well as painting from a live model. Aarwun Gallery masterclasses are a fun and inclusive atmosphere, with an emphasis on developing skills at all levels and learning from one another as well as the instructor. Both beginners and advanced artists are welcomed to this unique event. Lunch included, Cost $ 350.00

Tam attended the Julian Ashton Art School from 2008 – 2012 and was awarded the John Olsen Scholarship for 2010.
