Fundamentals of Likeness

In art schools, up until the middle of the 20th century, it was a fundamental practice to require all art students to master their drawing skills before advancing to painting and sculpture.

This class will demonstrate “how to” sculpt the feature and explain how these shapes and forms alter when showing different facial expressions and emotions.

How shapes and forms alter when showing different facial expressions and emotions

Racial and gender variations and characteristics

May 15 -18, 2018, Colore: Great Traditions Explored with Robert Liberace


This class explores the “painterly” approach in the manner of 16th Venetian painting and drawing. This idea is represented best by North Italian Renaissance artists such as Titian and Veronese and influenced painters from Velasquez to Sargent. The “colorito” approach involves more mass oriented drawing materials such as charcoal, pastels and ink wash, and the painting method stresses the broad application of paint with an emphasis on color resulting in pictures with an atmospheric subtlety. The first two days will concentrate on drawing using the traditional mediums of ink wash and charcoals. Day three, four, and five will be focused on painting both the portrait and figure.

(more detail coming soon…)

Color and Light Lab/ Edges


It has been said that Edges are the poetry, spirit and soul of a painting. While many admire the deft use of edges in master paintings, few have unlocked the secret to their use. Join Charles Miano on an exploration of this fundamental element of oil painting which can add beauty and intensity of emotion to your work.

In this Lab, Miano will outline a system for edge comparison. He will illustrate and demonstrate a clear method for interpreting the life we behold onto canvas, using secret components from the rich cultural tradition of painting. Atmosphere, color, light, values, forms and planes all give evidence toward the creation and design of edges in a painting. Each work of art should have a spontaneous and natural effect which can be made apparent with proper edge design. With the ultimate goal of “light effect”, Miano will teach exercises designed to improve one’s ability to see artistically.

Join us for this unique educational experience which explores a major principle in the art of seeing!

Supply list and details will be distributed upon registration.

Date: Nov.25-26th, 2017   from 9:30am-4:00pm

Cost: $250/per

Please email or call for registration!

Oct 14-15, Color & Light Lab: Understand Color Values with Charles Miano

Learning to accurately portray Color Values is the key to describing our visual experience in Painting. In this 2-day Oil Painting Lab, artists will learn to describe the “light effect”, using a range of tonal values. Participants will focus on how to create the correct value of the colors we perceive by simplifying them. A strong emphasis will be placed on half-tone painting, which can give a picture the proper sense of 3- dimensionality. Value studies will be made using a traditional system of comparison.

Artists will be working mostly with a monochromatic palette. Both open and closed grisaille painting will be taught and demonstrated throughout the workshop as well as some color note comparisons. Artists will work from a simple subject of their choice.

All are welcome to join Educator, Charles Miano of Southern Atelier on this visual journey of learning to “see” as an artist.

Date: Oct.14 – 15th, 2017 from 9:30am-4:00pm
