Artist Robert Liberace will teach a workshop at the Whidbey Island Fine Art Studio from Aug. 20-24, called Rediscovering Velasquez. Students explore the style and technique of the 17th century Spanish master Diego Velasquez. The workshop focuses on using his reserved palette and his extraordinary paint handling.

Liberace received the Portrait Society of America’s Grand Prize Award in their annual International Portrait Competition in 2003 and has created a series of carved marble reliefs which are now permanently located in the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC, as well as a life-sized marble statue of Mother Teresa.
