Workshop 3
Methods of the Masters: Caravaggio

 

Instructor: Martinho Correia

Dates: 2 - 13 July 2018

 

In this 60-hour workshop, students will gain hands-on familiarity with the techniques of one of the great masters of sacred art, Michelangelo Merisi, also called Caravaggio. Known for dramatic compositions using light and dark, called chiaroscuro, Caravaggio developed a very specific and efficient way of working. Using a high-quality reproduction, students will have the opportunity to thoroughly study how Caravaggio created his masterpieces. Beginning with the drawing stage through to the final glazes, all stages of Caravaggio’s painting process will be discussed and practiced.

The workshop will begin with a slide presentation introducing Caravaggio and his work, along with a step-by-step overview of the painting process. The instructor will demonstrate each of the key steps in the painting process and will individually assist each student as they progress on their copy.

This has been a wonderful experience. Martinho is a very patient teacher, who goes to great lengths to make sure his students understand the concepts well. Not only he organised a wonderful workshop, he made these two weeks full of fun. I am forever thankful for this unique experience. Thank you so much Martinho, you are a great teacher.
