Explore your passion for color as an artist with nationally known colorist Elio Camacho in our oil and acrylic painting series!

The class is structured for both beginner to advanced students who want to develop their skill understanding and using color. As a painting instructor, my mission is to provide students with the foundation necessary to be creative. My goal is to assist students in capturing the particular mood of the moment and to express themselves in a bold and colorful way, while capturing the beauty and spontaneity of life.

My workshops/classes are very hands on, with an emphasis on easel side critiques. I believe that giving instruction is important, but showing students how this instruction applies to their individual work is crucial. Based on the student’s level and goals, I develop a program for improving each individual’s ability as a painter.

Elio Camacho was born on the island of Madeira, hundreds of miles south of Portugal in the north Atlantic Ocean. He emigrated to California with his family.

More information is available on his Color Relations website.
