Open to All
Students of any skill and knowledge level.
Aug 7 - 11, 2023
Reinventing the Still-Life
Discover how to take still-life paintings to the next level, embedding them with rich content. This mixed-media painting class finds inspiration in contemporary artists whose exciting work fits into the still-life genre for inspiration. We then set up our own compositions and learn techniques to fill our paintings with meaning, wonder, pattern, form, color relationships, and dynamic compositions. The class focuses on experimenting with abstract mark-making as well as representational imagery. We discover different ways of using acrylic and delve into techniques such as collage, pochoir, stencils, and trace monotype to create new and surprising marks.
