Kevin Beilfuss

Figurative Painting:

An Intuitive Approach


Friday, Saturday & Sunday,

 October 19, 20 & 21, 2012 

9:00 am - 4:00 pm 

Price: $400.00 plus model fee

This workshop is for Advanced Painters.  You should have figure drawing and portrait painting experience.  Artists will be juried into this workshop based on their work.  Please submit name, address, phone, e-mail, web site address and 4-6 photos of your work (preferably portrait or figure pieces) by June 25, 2012.  You will be notified by July 2, 2012.

In this workshop Kevin will emphasize a more intuitive way to look at drawing and painting. Learning to see “impressionistically” the ability to suggest, rather than render the subject will be explored. This approach involves many quick drawing and painting exercises from both the nude and clothed figure, as well as having students work on more finished paintings during the course of the workshop. Demonstrations will be done every morning, followed by students exploring what was taught during the demonstration.

After graduating from Illinois State University and the American Academy of Art, Kevin set out on a free-lance illustration career which lasted thirteen years. The demands of painting someone else’s ideas finally took its toll. It was time to paint from his heart and what was important to him.


Kevin’s work has been the subject of several one man shows as well as being included in such prestigious annual shows as the Oil Painters of America, The Great American Figurative Shows and Salon International. Kevin’s award winning artwork can be seen in galleries throughout the U.S.
