What you'll learn in this painting class:

Still-life paintings created today have the ability to provide a sense of what our time was like, what things we valued, what stories we choose to narrate as well as a testament to our technical proficiency. Having a solid foundation in the rudimentary language of painting can only make for a more formidable artist .   


Concerns about composition, juxtaposing imagery, personal and cultural identity, counterpoint, allegory, and narrative metaphors are some of the motifs to be explored. 


This exciting course explores this genre's vast conceptual possibilities yet remains grounded in a strong classical foundation. From a technical approach, a strong emphasis on drawing, value control, varying brush applications, transparent and semi-transparent color glazing, and form and edge resolution are all key lessons to be learned. 


The course begins with composition sketches developing into fully realized drawings. After transferring the drawing, layers of monochromatic paint is applied for the under painting (open and closed grisaille) following with transparent and semi-transparent glazes of color until the process results in a finished painting.
