Thothstudio Atelier

This is the "official" online teaching portal of Juan Martinez. Recently launched as a full Atelier style program where students will be able to interact with Juan at all levels of the program. Besides the online one-on-one interaction, there will be plenty of printed material and "how-to" instruction as well as video tutorials. Eventually, all sections will be available as part of the curriculum, in order, and will also be available as stand-alone tutorials and demonstrations.

Direct Portrait - Form painting

Mother of Pearl Studios of Art

This is a single, long-pose portrait sitting which will enable very thorough exploration of form, colour, & concept. I'm excited to be able to do this workshop as part of what looks to be a wonderfully conceived and presented learning experience at the Mother of Pearl Studio of the Arts  facilitated by polymath artist, Heather Bishop, and her team! The studio is located in a beautiful woodland area south of Winnipeg, MB. Click here or on the picture at left for more info on the workshop and Mother of Pearl Studio of the Arts, and to register.

I'll look forward to seeing you there.
