In this 5-day workshop artists will work on a long-pose portrait. Students will proceed in a step-by-step manner, and thoroughly explore how to create a portrait that not only emphasize likeness, but also structural integrity, and light effect.

The block-in drawing using paint, underpainting/paint wash, big look, and finishing will all be explained fully.

Through individual critiques and daily demonstrations, artists will work alongside the instructor to meet their individual goals. All levels are welcome. Materials are included in this workshop and artists may choose to paint, or draw.


As well as being a practicing artist himself, Torgeir is a teacher on the three year program at SARA.


We will have 8 places in total available on this workshop. Students will work in our ateliers at SARA Academy where we also will serve the lunch.


Please note that if less than 4 students sign up for the workshop or if the workshop needs to be cancelled due to the pandemic, we will inform students at least one month before start and a full refund will be paid, otherwise the deposit is non-refundable.
