Painting: Still Life in Oils

Tuesdays, June 6 - 27

This still life painting class is designed for both beginners and intermediate artists who want to enhance their skills and explore the beauty of still life compositions. Over the four weeks, students will be guided through the process of creating stunning still life paintings focusing on composition, form, color and how to set up and light a still life. Students will be painting from observation not photographs, so multiple still life set ups will be done each class.
