June 25-29 | Still life painting | 10 AM – 4 PM |

We will emphasize on the essential elements on creating a strong still life painting – composition, drawing, color and value relationships. They will learn to create form and articulate space while working on a visually rich still life. I will work with the students individually, in a hands on, step by step fashion guiding them from start to finish and focusing on the aspects of the process. The workshop will be taught through lecture, demonstration, individual and group critiques.

All materials are provided.

At the end of the workshop students will go home with a ready to hang work of their own!
