Join professional artist James Razko for an intensive workshop suitable for painters of all levels, from beginners to advanced.

Trompe l’œil is an art technique that convincingly tricks the viewer's eye into believing they are seeing a painted object in a three-dimensional space. In this three-session workshop, participants will learn faux finish/exploratory techniques while developing the basic skills necessary to create realistic Trompe l’œil paintings using both acrylic and oil paint:

Session 1: Experimenting with textures and faux surfaces in acrylic;
Session 2: Creating composition and painting the design in acrylic;
Session 3: Trompe l’œil techniques in oil.

By the end of the workshop, participants will have mastered a technique that will expand their ability to create a three-dimensional feeling on a two-dimensional surface.
