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.
The class 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 lectures and demonstrations focusing on different topics as well as individual critiques while the student paints his or her own still life set up. For those who wish to focus on the simple fundamentals of drawing and painting, there will be a set up consisting of geometric shapes & colors. Some of the principles discussed 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.
An all levels workshop but some experience drawing or painting is recommended.
