Course Overview:
All levels welcome to participate in this comprehensive study of oil painting starting methods including, open grisaille, line and value block in and Tina’s favorite, selective start. Tina will discuss painting from photographs vs. painting from life, understanding form, value, temperature, edges and composition as well as color mixing, posing the model and insights on lighting and painting materials. Both portrait and figure poses will be available. Tina will demonstrate from the live model each morning and assist artists individually each afternoon.

Model fee is included in tuition but materials are not included.


In 2012, based on her self-taught pastel portraiture, the Scottsdale Artists’ School awarded Tina the first of two merit scholarships and she began working in oil, immediately falling in love and hitting the ground running, dedicating 5 years to the full-time practice of understanding oil painting.

In addition to various recognitions by the Portrait Society of America, Oil Painters of America, and National Oil and Acrylic Painters’ Society, Tina is a two-time Purchase Award winner in the 11th and 12th International ARC Salons. Twice exhibiting at the Museum of Modern Art Europe (MEAM) in Barcelona, Spain, and the Salmagundi Club in New York City, Tina’s works, “City Blues” and “String of Pearls” are now part of the Art Renewal Center’s renowned permanent collection.

In 2016, Tina earned a designation of ARC Associate Living Master from the Art Renewal Center and a Master Artist designation from the National Oil and Acrylic Painters’ Society. Tina has intently studied the Selective Start Method described in Alla Prima by Living Master Artist and Author Richard Schmid, studied in workshops and private lessons with Romel de la Torre, and workshops with Casey Baugh, Aaron Westerberg, Lisa Gloria, Jeremy Lipking, Tim Deibler, Michelle Dunaway, Stanka Kordic and Kathy Anderson. In the course of her serious pursuit of fine art mastery, Tina has created a growing family of private collectors and commissioned clients in the U.S. and the U.K. and teaches workshops across the U.S.. In October, 2017, Tina will teach her first international workshop (in Tuscany, Italy) and coming full circle, Tina will teach her first workshop at the Scottsdale Artists’ School.
