"Building a Still Life" --- In Studio Workshops

"Building a Still Life" based on the 14 Sunflowers of Vincent Van Gogh 

This Course takes the artist (the students) through the process of selecting materials, setting, backdrop and color scheme for a variety of Still Life Paintings.

From choosing the Materials, Setting the Lighting, and Creating a Balanced Painting the students are limited to a Primary Color Palette and taught how to use lighting, low lights, and hi-lights to create the depth, shapes and shadows.

Depending on the students... Acrylic Paints, Oil Pastels, Oil Paints, and Various Pencils will be Explored and Encouraged.

Lesson One: Acrylic
Lesson Two: Oil Pastels
Lesson Three: Oil Paints
Lesson Four: Student's Choice

This will be an ongoing self-paced class and can be repeated.  No still life will be exactly the same, even if the materials are similar.  Built the way Van Gogh and other Impressionistic Artists would have built them.

*proposed dates are tentative and exact times will vary according to planned and unplanned family needs.  All materials included with PAID REGISTRATION and CONFIRMATION!!!!
