This three-day intensive has been designed for intermediate to advanced students looking to expand their practice in oil painting. Working from reference images, over the course of the intensive you will be introduced to a series of oil painting techniques to guide you through the process of creating a number of articulate paintings of the human figure.

Ignacio Rojas was born in Chile, and migrated to Australia in 2001. With over 30 group and solo shows under his belt and a double degree in Fine Arts and Sociology, Ignacio’s chief artistic interests focus on Ala Prima (single attempt or wet on wet) painting. Ignacio’s passion for painting and teaching make his classes dynamic and productive, and you will leave the session armed with a range of new processes and techniques.
