Enhance your skills in this two-day workshop led by the award-winning artist, Antonio Lones. Working with the figure from life can be a difficult task, especially when including a wide range of skin tones. During this informative journey, you will gain insight into efficient strategies to achieve accurate skin tones with a limited palette. On the first day, Antonio will provide a lecture and demonstration, while the second day allows you to put your new knowledge into practice while focusing on a live model. 

Antonio Lones was born and raised in El Salvador, at which point he developed a passion for art at a young age. His aptitude for drawing was evident from his early school years; however, it wasn't until 2011 that he discovered formal instruction in painting and drawing. In 2013, Antonio had to abandon his studies in architecture in order to pursue the 'American Dream' by relocating to the USA. Driven by realistic aesthetic and classical techniques, self-taught Lones continued to create artwork. Subsequently, he came across an art school located in Boston and in 2018 he joined ARA Boston on a one-year full tuition scholarship, which allowed him to cultivate his ability to create portraits and render classical painting.

He is determined to further his personal and artistic development, experimenting with painting as a form to externalize his ideas, wherein the primary topic involves commonplace items. Transforming everyday objects into an account that calls for the unity of compositional ornament, color theory and design. His aspiration is to replicate in his artworks the illustrative depiction of his perspective, a tale of his homeland’s culture, or to affix the beauty of the ordinary; an appreciation that is so often overlooked.
