5 Day Spring Session – April 30 - May 4, 2012
5 Day Fall Session - November 5 - 9, 2012

9:00 am to 6:30 pm each day

A rare opportunity to learn from a true Master Artist — Frank Covino.

Covino has guided over 29,000 students spanning
over 50 years of instruction.

Photographic reference permits a variety of subject matter created in the same classroom, offering a much broader range of art education than you would receive in a workshop where everyone paints from the same model.

Learn Frank Covino’s proven system to produce your own masterpieces like the great masters. He gives personalized hands on instruction with every student because the maximum class size is only 15 students. Frank Covino Students are among the highest paid semi-professional artists in the world.

The Artist Magazine, May 2000
named Frank Covino's Oil Painting Workshops
one of  "The Top Five Workshops in the country."

Award winning artist, Sherry Huntting, added three new awards to her list last week at
the El Dorado County Fair. In the Professional Fine Art Division, she won both First Place
and Best of Show for her pastel painting “Brilliance.”

She also won First Place for her oil painting “Mountain Stream.”
Sherry is an artist of amazing versatility. She paints heirloom paintings
of portraiture,
figurative, still life, landscape, and seascape. She teaches all of these in her art academy
Sherry Huntting Academy of Classical Realism. Her joy is taking a student from where they are as a beginner or a professional artist, to their next level of expertise. She delights in watching their excitement of their own artistic growth.
