- All levels are welcome to this 5-Day Flesh Tones Workshop for Oil Painters with Art Renewal Center (ARC) Associate Living Master, Tina Garrett. Tina started oil painting in 2012 and shares with her students the practical methods she uses in her award-winning portraiture to help artists make the best paintings they have ever made. Tina is a two-time ARC Salon Purchase Prize winner, three-time Oil Painters of America Online Showcase awardee, an International Artist Magazine People & Figures Grand Prize winner, and a proud Cecelia Beaux Forum Mentor for the Portrait Society of America. Students who have struggled with creating accurate skin tones and painting flesh that looks alive and breathes will love this workshop!
Throughout this 30-hour master class, students will study flesh tones in multiple lighting scenarios including varied complexions and ethnicities, 'underwater’ light, and painted faces. Tina will demonstrate at least three starting methods: Accurate Color Wash, Open Grisaille, and Value Block-In each morning, and students will paint from the life model each afternoon, with individual critique and one-on-one guidance from Tina offered throughout.
Tina will share her practical strategies to creating an accurate color palette, understanding values, temperature and how they create form, as well as two simple techniques for accurate drawing. Students will focus intently on the creation of an accurate palette. Tina will demonstrate the processes she employs in all her works, focusing on composition, values, chroma, edges, and mark-making. Additionally, she will demonstrate how to control your palette for accurate values and color and give key strategies for portrait artists, including detailed instruction on client contracts and relations, PR/marketing, social media, and how to price your work.
- INCLUDED MATERIALS: DARA and Tina Garrett will provide each student with the following materials at no additional cost:
- 5 portrait-grade, double lead-primed canvases in varying sizes ranging from 20x30 cm to 30x40cm
- Because Tina is a Gamblin Dedicated Workshop Instructor, Gamblin will provide Gamsol (odor-free solvent), Cadmium Orange Deep and Green Gold samples, as well as a handful of other fun Gamblin products!

- PAYMENT POLICY
The fee for this course is €980*, inclusive of all life model fees, complimentary lunch and refreshments, and all materials specified as 'included' on the materials list. Once the Dutch Atelier of Realist Art (DARA) has notified the student of his or her acceptance into the workshop via email, a deposit payment equivalent to one half of the course fee is due within two weeks in order to reserve the student's place. Spaces are not reserved until the deposit has been paid.
The remaining balance of workshop fees is due no later than 23 August 2021. After this time, new students may still register for the course if there is room available, but are advised that the full course fee is due upon acceptance.
In the event that the necessary fees are not paid by the aforementioned deadlines, the student will be notified by email that he or she risks relinquishing their space in the class if the overdue fees are not paid within 7 days. Students who have not paid the full course fee prior to the first day of the workshop are not permitted to attend under any circumstances.
Please Note: While model fees are included with the cost of the workshop, an additional daily cash tip of €18 is to be given to the model if the student wishes to take any photos of him or her to continue painting from later on.
* The Dutch Atelier of Realist Art is a vocational school recognized by the Centraal Register Kort Beroepsonderwijs (CRKBO). Students enrolled in our courses are therefore exempt from paying additional VAT (BTW).

After submitting a registration form, the student will be sent an email notification within 48 hours as to the status of his or her acceptance in the workshop. The Dutch Atelier of Realist Art (DARA) reserves the right to refuse enrollment to any new or returning students deemed by the studio administration to be out of line with the programme's stated mission and policies, and/or disruptive to the studio and its attendees.
Registration is accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, and it is therefore advisable for students to sign up for courses early while spaces are available. Spaces are very limited in order to ensure that each student receives a high level of individual attention and one-on-one instruction. Once the workshop has been filled, any subsequent applicants will be placed on a waiting list. In the event that a student cancels his or her registration and/or fails to pay the requisite course fees, the next student on the waiting list will receive the space in the class instead.
WORKING IN THE STUDIO
All students agree to adhere to our Studio Policies as a condition of their continued enrollment in any workshop offered at DARA. Students are expected to maintain a professional working environment at all times by respecting themselves, fellow students, models, guests, and instructors.
Students are expected to arrive to class on time and with the appropriate required materials in order to participate in the workshop. During the course, each student is provided with storage space to store his or her art supplies, artwork, and personal belongings. Please note that all student belongings must be taken home by the last day of the workshop. DARA accepts no responsibility for the damage, loss, or theft of student property, except in cases solely attributable to the misconduct of a DARA staff member.STUDIO CANCELLATIONS
The minimum level of enrollment for this course to run is 8 students. In the event that this enrollment level is not attained, students will be notified 60 days in advance of the start of the course, and will be offered the option of either receiving a full refund* or transferring to a different course of their choosing (provided that space is available.) All refunds are processed within 7 days of studio cancellations.
During the workshop, if a single class session is cancelled for any reason, DARA will notify all students of the cancellation by phone and email. Every effort will be made to schedule a make-up class at a time convenient for the majority of students. Refunds for cancelled class sessions are awarded only in the event that no make-up class is scheduled. DARA reserves the right to substitute instructors and/or models during a class if no alternative is available.
*Please note that in the event of a studio cancellation, DARA is only responsible for refunding the cost of tuition, and not for any of the student's associated expenses, such as travel fare and/or purchase of class materials.STUDENT CANCELLATIONS
PLEASE NOTE: In cooperation with Tina Garrett, the student cancellation policy for this workshop may differ from the cancellation policies of workshops offered in our studio by other visiting artists.
Cancellations may be made by email notification to email@example.com. Students who cancel their workshop registration within 14 days of submitting a registration form are entitled to a full refund of fees. All refunds are processed within 7 days of the cancellation date.
Please note that after this 14-day grace period has passed, all fees become non-refundable.
In the event that a student must cancel after the 14-day grace period has passed, he or she may recoup the cost of workshop fees by finding another artist willing to purchase their space. The Dutch Atelier of Realist Art must be informed in advance, and the substituting artist will be required to complete an online registration form in order to be permitted to attend.
In the event that a student drops out of the workshop after the course has already begun, and the date of cancellation falls within the aforementioned 14-day grace period, the student is still required to pay the total cost of services rendered (calculated by the number of class dates the student was in attendance). The student will be refunded the remaining balance of fees.
