Join international artist Alvaro Castagnet, the Passionate Painter in this three day watercolor workshop!

About Alvaro: Alvaro's early interest in art was cultivated mainly by his father, who sent him to the National School of Art in Montevideo at a very young age, where he was taught by Professor Esteban Garino.

Castagnet carried on his formal education in art at the Fine Arts University, where Miguel Angel Pareja was his oil painting tutor. Castagnet migrated to Australia in 1983, and lived there enjoying the cosmopolitan and forward-looking attitude of that country for 20 years. He currently lives in Montevideo, Uruguay.

Alvaro has been holding solo exhibitions since 1985, and has been recognized with dozens of awards over the last 30 years. Alvaro writes articles for many international artist publications worldwide. He travels around the world, painting, demonstrating, lecturing, and judging art competitions also guest-attending exhibitions of his work.

Alvaro is the author of Watercolor Painting with Passion, Painting with Passion Beyond Technique books. Alvaro is featured in innumerable art books, videos, DVDs and acclaimed international art publications. His main studio is located in Montevideo, Uruguay, where he lives with his wife, Ana Maria & their teenage sons.
