Still Life Painting in Acrylic & Oil (4wk) May 28 - June 18 6:30-9:30pm

With Emily Joyce

During this 4 week class, students will explore the art of painting from life. Each class, students will complete painting studies from elaborate and unique still life arrangements. The arrangement will change theme each class, with each weekly lesson touching upon different key techniques of still life painting: rendering accurate shapes; capturing realistic value; colour theory; and replicating texture through paint. In addition, students will learn about how to set-up their own successful still lives in their painting studio. Students may work in either oil or acrylic for this class. *Please see guidelines below for oils

Base Tuition: $210 Material Fee: $15

Material fee: $15 per person. This will be for perishables (flowers, fruit and other food) that will be purchased for each still-life set-up throughout the 4 week class.
