Description: This class teaches the fundamentals of painting a still life arrangement in oil. Beginning with a toned canvas, students will execute a careful drawing and subsequently build up the forms of the still life objects darks to lights. Emphasis is on understanding the way light falls across form, how the eye travels across the painting, and how to create edges that lead the eye. The class will begin with a demonstration of the alla prima technique, used by John Singer Sargent and handed down through generations of atelier painters and teachers.


Level: must have working experience in oil paints, not a beginning painting class.
