Still life painting is an ageless subject of many styles and interpretations by countless artists.  This workshop focuses on making the planning and production of a successful still life a more simple process for the artist.  Still life set-ups (with a twist) will be professionally displayed throughout the studio as subjects for the day.  Various techniques will be demonstrated including gesture, contour, eye hand coordination, gridding using shapes, and warm ups that really help.  Fun will be the key word in warm-ups before painting!  Color and expression will be the bywords to create completed paintings.  Reproduction of artwork and greeting cards will be a component of the workshop.  Techniques and a successful still life will be highlighted.  This fun filled studio workshop is appropriate for all levels, beginning to advanced.  Join us for a wonderful day of art!
