Instructors: Nicholas Enevoldsen
This workshop provides a unique opportunity to study with a former principal instructor of the Florence Academy of Art in Florence, Italy.
Exploring the richness of oil paint, students will create a long pose figure painting from direct observation and learn a step-by-step approach for capturing a model’s likeness.
Nicholas will present live demonstrations, individual critiques, and a series of lectures designed to equip students with techniques for mixing flesh tones, paint application, and how to imbue their work with a compelling sense of light, atmosphere, and form.

At the Laguna College of Art & Design, in Laguna Beach, California, he received a BFA in Studio Art along with various awards and scholarships, including the coveted “Passport to China” scholarship in 2006. After graduating, he devoted four years of intensive study at the Florence Academy of Art in Florence, Italy. As a student, he was appointed 'Principal Instructor' for the Intensive Drawing Program and awarded the “Fourth Year Prize” providing an additional year of specialization. Nicholas has since completed his MFA at the Lesley University College of Art & Design, in Cambridge, Massachusetts and relocated to Seattle where he actively draws and paints and serves as 'Adjunct Professor' at Shoreline Community College and ‘Instructor’ at the Kirkland Arts Center.
