Fall Continuing Ed Oil Painting Portrait Classes at the School of Visual Arts with Marvin Mattelson

It’s been a very busy summer for me. I completed two portraits and went down to Bermuda to gather reference for a series of paintings I’ve been commissioned to paint of  Bermudian architecture.

First of all, I wanted to share my latest commission with you, a portrait of Robert Cripps, the retiring Chairman of the Board of Velcro Industries. I feel like I’m learning so much with each painting I complete, and I love sharing my newfound knowledge with all my students.

If  you want to take the next step forward in your artistic evolution or maybe you just feel stuck, refocusing on the core principles that I teach can be a big boost to your progress. By constantly reviewing these principles I continue to deepen my understanding and this is what fuels my artistic growth.

I’ll be teaching two Continuing Education classes at the School of Visual Arts during the fall semester. If you or a friend are interested in attending, please don’t wait until the last minute to register. The classes start a week from this coming Saturday and Sunday, on September 21st and 22nd. If you’ve already signed up, thank you, and I look forward to seeing you soon.

All principles are fully explained while being clearly demonstrated.

I hope to see you in a class.
