Atlanta Military Figure Society


Fernando Ruiz Workshop

The Atlanta Military Figure Society is hosting a figure painting workshop with Fernando Ruiz.

As you know, among other things, Fernando Ruiz is the owner of the FeR Miniatures and the painter of many of the company’s box arts. He works professionally for collectors and has painted several box art pieces for other miniature companies as well as winning numerous awards in international competitions. He has hosted numerous seminars around the world, in places as far as Brazil, Korea and around all of Europe.

These courses are intended to demonstrate a highly popular and celebrated way of painting, known as the “Spanish School”, through one of its best exponents, brought straight away for that purpose from Spain. AMFS is offering a great opportunity to participate in a workshop experience for figure painters, which will help you improve your abilities and to learn some new techniques.

Fernando will paint on a sample figure in order to demonstrate the techniques. He will assist each person in turn with their own versions using the demonstrated technique. This workshop will show techniques using acrylics paints. This workshop will consist of intensive sessions over a total of two days (~17 hours) and it will be done for a maximum of 15 persons per class, so the quality of the teaching does not get compromised. By having limited seating this will give the students the chance to comment and get explanation on techniques and to ask questions.

Workshop Details

The workshop will be hosted at the Hilton Atlanta/Marietta Conference Center, starting 1:00PM Wednesday 13, Thursday 14 and will conclude at 12:00PM Friday 15 February 2019. The cost of this great opportunity to learn from a well known and award winning painter is $250.
