All skill levels - Ages 16 to Adult $80
4 week course – 6-8pm - Mon 10/30, Mon 11/13, Mon 11/20, Mon 11/27
The focus of this class will be to learn the basic materials, techniques, and tools used to create realistic paintings of still life representing true light and accurate dimensions. Once we have covered the fundamentals of using the medium, you will learn the process of constructing the still life composition with proper layout and balance. You'll learn how to paint interesting arrangements that are not only beautiful to look at, but can sometimes tell a story. You'll learn how to prioritize the order of layers and how to develop a fully realized painting. Materials List will be provided for brushes, paints, and substrates via email prior to the class start date. Each student will create one painting during this workshop that will be based on a still life configuration prepared by the instructor.
Wk 1: Review of materials, painting basics, and discussion on lighting and set-up of objects to create drama and visual impact. Demonstration on how to prepare and layout the painting by creating an initial sketch.
Wk 2: Working from still life configuration prepared by the instructor, the first layer of painting will be completed.
Wk 3: Continue developing layers and continue building details and dimension to capture the full structure of the still life objects and their surroundings. Guidance will continually be given on different techniques and construction strategies.
Wk 4: Completion of final layer to include fine tuning details and critique of finished painting.
