Using a range of materials such as colored pencils, collage, watercolor, gouache and acrylic, explore different approaches to still life through a mixture of wet and dry media. Experiment with unconventional methods to translate what you see into a unique composition. Each week will focus on introducing new mediums into our toolbox, with an emphasis on experimentation. Topics will include color, texture, perspective, abstraction vs. representation, and more.
Classes will include warm-up exercises, discussion of still life works by other artists, instructor demonstrations, and time to work on a still life composition with feedback on individual progress.
