Join Costa Dvorezky, in a small-group setting, where you will learn his expressive, figurative painting technique!

In this workshop, students will learn Costa's unique approach to painting the figure precisely, yet loose, as we explore painting figures from a live model. Costa will give regular demonstrations and one-on-one feedback throughout the workshop. Costa will share his technique and experience as it relates to composition and design, color, brushwork, and more.  Be prepared to fully immerse yourself in painting for four days, and leave with new tools and techniques in your toolbox.



**Exact supplies will be mailed out one month prior to workshop.

Costa has drawn inspiration for his prolific works of art   from board travels and his abundant life experiences as   both a visitor and resident of numerous countries   around the world. Born in Russia in 1968, Costa   developed his unique brand of art through his extensive   schooling at the Art College and the Academy of Arts in   Moscow. His passion and talent for art was recognized   by Russia’s Union of Young Artists when he received the   Development of The Year Award in 1997.

Through his paintings Costa goes beyond the obvious to uncover the symbolism within the human aspect of daily life. His creativity and style come alive through his works depicting dark and surreal imagery. As a viewer of Costa’s images, one is transported to a world of fictional proportions that exists in the recesses of the artist’s mind.

Metamorphosed human and animal figures shrouded in darkness, suggest the existence of a distorted world-order. These images evoke one to closely examine and question the reality of what one sees. Through his artwork, Costa challenges the observer to not only understand the scope of the actual image, but to also comprehend the feelings that the image provokes. His paintings are as bold as the statements that they make, and it is up to each individual to decipher what the meaning behind the image really is.

Costa’s art has achieved international recognition. It has been featured in many private and public exhibits on European and North American stage, and has been sold to many private collection in Europe, the United States and Canada.
