Still Life Painting is an important genre of art and a proven tool for teaching artists of every skill level the disciplines needed to create successful, beautiful paintings.
This Workshop will concentrate on many of the fundamentals of good picture making, from the technical to the conceptual with still life as the subject matter. The class will have daily lectures and demonstrations focusing on different topics as well as individual critiques while the student paints his or her own still life set up. Some of the principles discussed through out the workshop will be composition, accuracy in drawing, color and color theory, understanding form and modeling, edge control, glazing/scumbling techniques, lighting, materials and good studio practice. The work and knowledge explored during the workshop can be translated to any genre of painting. Personality and vision are important elements in creating art. Having the foundation to master your craft and carry-out your creativity is essential.
