We are super excited that Shane will be back with us this fall, this time to teach a figure painting workshop. His last workshop fill up quickly so please sign up as soon as possible.
During this 2-and-a-half-day intensive Shane Wolf will take you through his alla prima painting process from the live model: the initial gesture phase, placing shadow and light shapes, capturing the full value range, and the finishing brushwork. In his alla prima workshops Shane always emphasizes mixing, finding, and maintaining “clean” hue and chroma. This is an intense painting experience that will help painters of all levels in their understanding of color, palette and brush management, and alla prima painting. Students will be working from a live unclothed models. Both male and female. There will be a lunch break each day. Lunch is on your own. Should you need any assistance with travel accommodation recommendations, please feel free to ask!

About the instructor:
Shane Wolf was born in 1976 in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. After receiving his bachelor’s degree in design in 2000 from the University of Cincinnati College of DAAP he joined Salomon SAS in Annecy, France, as a graphic designer. In 2004 he embarked on a 16-month around the world trip and kept a drawing journal of his travels. His journey led him to Florence, the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance.
In Florence, he began studying art at the Angel Academy of Art. From 2005 to 2009, he rigorously explored the fundamentals of art based on techniques used by the most influential Old Masters. He received his Diploma of Excellence while also serving as teacher at this prestigious Italian art academy.
In 2010, Shane moved to Paris where he lived and worked for over a decade, driven by a vital desire to draw and share his humanist ideals inspired by the human form. Wolf has been awarded numerous prizes and participated in many solo and group exhibitions in Europe and the USA.
Some of the many international awards and recognition Shane has received include: 1st and 2nd place Best Nude from the Art Renewal Center, New York (2013); Gold Medal from the European Academy of Arts – France (2013); medalled by both historic French organizations: the Société des Artistes Français (2013, 2012) and the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts (2011); the prestigious “Taylor Prize” during his exhibition at the Grand Palais (2011); and finalist in the America China Oil Painting Artists League, New York (2010).
