Sinopia Pigments Seminar



Since opening our doors in 1995, Sinopia has been known for instructional seminars on topics related to pigments and traditional painting techniques. While we can no longer offer these seminars in our store, we do offer more extensive classes in various locations around the Bay Area. Please visit this page for updates or sign up for our newsletter for further seminar information.

These classes are taught by founder of Sinopia, Alex Warren. Alex Warren has been making his own paints for over 20 years and has become an expert in the field pigments through his experience of running Sinopia since 1995. Alex Warren is also available for teaching seminars to small groups outside of the San Francisco Bay Area. For further information and details, please contact Sinopia:
