In Academic Still Life Techniques, students will learn how to arrange and paint full color still life paintings. We will begin by executing a clear line drawing so that we can acheive accurate shapes and proportions in our compositions. We will then transfer the drawing and discuss how to approach a painting, step by step, so that students can see the entire process and gain confidence.

Time will be spent covering value and color relationships, basic color theory, how to convincingly depict light and form, how to render different types of materials and general paint handling. Time will also be spent talking about materials and setting ourselves up for success in our paintings.

For intermediate to advanced artists, this class will be a great opportunity to push your skills to the next level.
