Illustrative Lighting and Color Theory
with Dan dos Santos
Fri-Sun, July 15-17, $550

Award winning illustrator, Dan dos Santos, will show you how to create more dynamic compositions and a stronger narrative through the careful use of light and color.

The workshop will focus specifically on lighting techniques and color theory, giving the students a deeper understanding of how light works. We will also discuss how we can use these techniques to paint more convincing skin tones, or achieve a greater sense of realism when painting from imagination.


Students will implement these techniques in class as they work alongside the instructor on their own paintings as well as several exercises.
