|Tiepolo-inspired painting by Pascal Amblard|
A sought-after mural artist working internationally from his studio in la Haute-Savoie, Pascal is also well known as a generous and skilled teacher. I am thrilled to host him in my own mural studio this summer for what we have been calling the "dream class!"
July 10-17, 2017
Seven day Mural Master Class
This course will give those wishing to improve their mural painting skills, an opportunity to work at a grand scale, learn design, drafting, and painting techniques for creating large scale works.

We will share and experience together in what is so rarely taught: how do we get from a blank piece of wall to a spectacular, harmonious and desirable mural composition.
"Once the composition is set we will use projectors, possibly some free-hand drawing as well. Then we will paint, and I will teach you the techniques I have used and refined through hundreds of murals.
As we have a lot of working space, we will do this on a grand scale. Each person will have room to work comfortably.
"A good mural painter has to know about a few topics : skies, landscapes / trees, architecture / perspective , figures / draperies , objects / still lives. Besides composing a large and complex mural, the point of this class is also to cover all these fields."
