Join us during this weekend with the talented and multiple award winning Kirill Kanaev and expand your skills with new insights and approaches to figure painting.

During this weekend Kirill will take you through the methods and techniques that he uses to achieve the amazing and life-like textures on his figures.

For each step in the process you will first watch the “How-To” by Kirill  himself after which you get to work on the bust that will be supplied for this workshop, and Kirill will guide you along by checking the progress and providing individual support on your advancements

Program Kirill Kanaev seminar weekend


At SMC 2018 we already gathered a list of interested participants so it is likely that the seminar with the original dates, March 16/17, will be sold out fast.

Therefore we offer the option of joining the seminar at an alternative date in the same venue and the same program.

This alternative weekend will take place on March 9 and 10, 2019.  The minimum number of students has been reached already so this weekend has been added 100% certain.

On the registration form we ask you to indicate if you are  OK to take part in seminar on the alternative dates in case the original dates are fully booked. This will save you and us sending emails back and forth.

Saturday Night Show Down Diner: on Saturday evening at 19:30

We have planned a joint diner in Eindhovens’ city centre. A nice opportunity to talk about figure painting, creative things in general, the world today, and maybe even talk about things that really matter, in a setting away from the airbrush vapors while enjoying good food and drinks amongst old and new friends.

We’ll keep things simple and affordable yet very tasty, and will decide where to go at a later date,  also depending on the number of people joining for diner. In any case we will go somewhere in the centre of Eindhoven.

Just tick the box on the registration form if you want to come along, so we can plan accordingly.

Payment for the diner will be at the restaurant, so there´s no pre-payment required for it.
