WHAT MAKES  8PAINT WORKSHOPS DIFFERENT?

Each workshop melds two worlds: 

Abstraction & Representation

 

All of the 8paint workshops are taught by the instructor extraordinaire, Gabriel Mark Lipper, and are designed to stand apart in the world of art education.

He has successfully taught thousands of students world-wide. Many students have gone on to receive prestigious awards and have solo shows.

Gabriel is known for merging the boldness of abstraction with the precision of representational techniques. You won't find this process in any other online program out there.

If you struggle to let go and take risks, Gabriel provides a nurturing environment where you can embrace the unknown, and revel in the process of creation.

If you feel intimidated by the details of realism, he offers clear, practical tools that empower you to tackle and master intricate designs.

With Gabriel's expert support and the flexible "learn on your own time" approach, you'll overcome artistic challenges and evolve faster than you ever imagined.

"This whole summer series of videos are gems….so foundational...to anything. Thank you Gabe. I’m integrating."

THE LANDSCAPE WORKSHOP 
July 22 - August 2, 2024

Landscapes are emotive. We respond to perspective, composition, scale, color and value without even realizing it.

The challenge of creating beautiful landscapes lies in understanding the tools that get us there.

In this 2-week workshop, Gabriel will teach you how to transform vast, inspiring scenes into works of art on canvas.

He simplifies complex ideas, such as sunlight and shadow, atmosphere and the power of cool and warm colors. Bring the spaciousness of your world onto the canvas!

THE PORTRAIT WORKSHOP
August 19 - August 30, 2024

This workshop offers an intimate look into portrait painting, from understanding basic head proportions to refining the subject's unique features.

Gabriel will begin by exploring the structure of the face using volume and form. You will learn to depict the head accurately from various angles. He'll delve into the use of lighting and color for mood and address composition challenges like color harmony and background design.

The handling of facial features can either enhance or diminish a painting, as viewers naturally focus on faces. Gabriel will show you how to conquer this art world challenge and master portrait painting!

Meet Your Instructor:

Gabriel Lipper, a professional painter, exceptional instructor and founder of 8Paint Infinite Arts. 

Years of suffering through the rigors of classical training, helped me to realize that art-making was bigger than 'getting it right", and didn't have to be so difficult to master. I've developed my own way of seeing. One that feels authentic to me and lights me up, from the inside out. It combines the traditional academic approach with my own contemporary style and love of painting. It's been a long road to get here but it doesn't need to take so much time.

Over the last 25 years working as a professional painter, and through much trial and error, I've discovered the specific tools and techniques necessary to build a strong foundation and inspire your inner confidence. It's from this place, that creative freedom, flow and transformation is achieved.

And this is why I created the Summer Workshop Series! I want to give you the lessons that took me years to learn and help catapult your art to new heights.
