The intent of this oil painting workshop will be to learn to capture the essence of light and color by establishing accurate value and color relationships. To that end, we will be working from models in different lighting conditions with short poses. The instructor will demonstrate these concepts and principles live in the studio as well as discuss how it works in finished artwork. Space is limited!

Michael Malm lives in the beautiful Cache Valley of northern Utah with his wife, Juanita, and their four children. The surrounding rural communities and setting provide backdrops for his figure paintings and inspiration for his landscapes. His serious study began under Del Parson at Dixie College where he completed his associate’s degree. He then went on to Southern Utah University where he had the opportunity to study with Perry Stewart, and completed his formal education at Utah State University where he received a Master of Fine Arts Degree studying under Glen Edwards. Workshops have also played an important part of his development studying with such master painters as Richard Schmid, Burton Silverman, Daniel Gerhartz, Quang Ho, Ron Hicks, Michael Workman, and Jim Norton. “I am grateful to have studied under some great artists. I am always inspired by their work, and grateful for their ability and willingness to pass along their knowledge to me."
