Painting Class Information Roman jarhead Lappat

Beginners Painting Class (international) Infosheet

by Roman Lappat aka Jarhead The workshops basic aim is an introduction to options for a fast high-quality painting of gaming-miniatures in connection with knowlegde of art-history and its application. Furthermore to improve your own perspective and feeling for colours and harmony in theory and exercise. The class is for beginners, advanced painters and experts as it gives an Introduction in my way of working and thinking in theory and practical work and describtions. Everyone takes what he likes due his own experience of painting. Roman will make sure that every participant will be guided and taken by the hand to get precise feedback and solutions for his actual level of experience. Roman has finished a lot of gaming- and display miniatures over the last few years, with the basic idea to have them look good on the table, but of course some them breached the frontier between basic (for gaming) and high-quality painting for contests where he has been highly awarded during the last years. While painting this mass of minatures and being confronted with their variety he earned a lot of experience which he now wants to share with you. Romans apprenticeship in becoming a teacher helps making this class a well structured, maximum learn effect orientated event. Furthermore there will be a an individual mentoring for each participant accordingly to his level of proficiency: beginner, advanced learner, professional as described above.

Here you find a gallery with some of Romans painted minatures: You will find further information about me, current projects, tutorials, apes and bananas here: You will also find some reviews about previous paintingclasses only in Germany so far:
