Join us for four Wednesdays of Still Life Painting taught by artist and instructor Kelly Foss. (All materials are included.)
Each attendee is provided oil paint, a canvas, brushes, an easel, stool with a back, disposable palette, Gamsol (odorless thinner) and a small table for supplies.
December sessions are Wed 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th. Sessions run three hours. You must purchase a spot before attending.
Week 1. Learn how to set up a dynamic still life using man-made items and how to set the pose to improve accuracy and ease. After drawing the still life, next up is “inking in”.
Week 2. Over last week’s drawing do a “wipe-out” to set the still life’s values. Begin color theory; learn about hues, chroma, and values. Practice mixing colors. Paint a small poster study.
Week 3. A demo on how to do an underpainting, a “first pass” and a “final pass” for a still life. Work on the final painting with full-color and values.
Week 4. Finishing the painting with details and textures.
Painting may be stored on sight during enrollment and should be taken by attendees at the end of the final session.
Classical music is typically played at low levels during sessions.
For everyone’s safety, our room is monitored by a video camera. By signing up for sessions you are agreeing to and accept this arrangement.
