Gina Torello earned her M.F.A in Florence, Italy from the Dominican University in Chicago Illinois. She taught at Boardman Studios, an undergraduate Academy in Florence, Italy.

Gina is an active Board of Trustee Member on the Monmouth Arts Organization here in Monmouth County, and an Adjunct Professor at Monmouth University. She teaches at many local art institutions in our county, including the Guild of Creative Art.

Gina’s fine arts class, Painting the Human Form, will be held on Friday mornings from 10:00-12:00. This course is designed to guide each student in painting the human form in oils, but students may utilize their favorite medium, such as acrylics or pastels. Students will strengthen their anatomical drawing skills and their understanding of how light wraps around the human figure.

Students will experience the enjoyable and fulfilling process of creating beautiful and unique works of art. Students can expect to complete one painting a week, rotating their position in the classroom throughout the four weeks in order to capture various perspectives of the model. All artistic and ability levels are welcomed into this course. Individual artists will be instructed at their stage of experience. Bring your favorite supplies, as this course welcomes oils, acrylics and pastels.

Students will supply their own materials. Minimum canvas size is 20”x16”. Gina will be instructing in oils, however, if you prefer working in pastels or acrylic, please bring all materials for the medium you choose.

A cash-only model fee for all four class sessions will be collected on the first day of the first class.

Contact Gina if you have any questions.
