What you'll do
In this 3 hour experience, you'll dive into the art of oil painting. From the absolute beginner who is convinced they can't paint, to the professional who is looking to polish their skill set, you will learn a new approach to this old world art. We'll begin composing our still-life by learning how to truly see the subject as we draw it step by step. We'll then capture the sense of light hitting our subject in the timeless miracle of chiaroscuro (light and shadow). At this point, the illusion of our subject will appear in three dimensions on our canvases. Now in front of you is proof that you too can paint because Oil Painting is For Everyone! While this class can be challenging, Rokoff studio has a fun, relaxed atmosphere where you will learn timeless techniques to realize your vision.

My life's work has been dedicated to capturing the spirit of the human figure and sharing techniques to unlock the mysteries of oil painting. In 2010-2012 I apprenticed with master oil painter Odd Nerdrum. Huffington Post noted Rokoff Studio as one of the best places to study representational painting on the West Coast. Exhibitions include New York, Beverly Hills, Paris, Central & South America.
