Placeholder Image

Transforming a photograph into a painting is the task artists will undertake for three days at Quinlan Visual Arts Center.

The Inside of Painting Workshop with Debra Nadelhoffer will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Jan. 8-10 at 514 Green St. in Gainesville. The class costs $350.

The class will focus on using photographs to create studio paintings.

The instructor has photographs for the students to work from, which create typical challenges for artists. Students may bring their own picture as well.

The instructor will emphasize the development of a painting from composition to finish including initial drawing, lay in, color and color mixing. Underpainting techniques for both mediums will be discussed as well as materials and surfaces for both mediums. The instructor will conduct a demonstration each day.

Drawing experience is required.
