Event Details

Using the still life as a common departure point, you will observe and draw with scissors to build a personal language with shape, texture, and color. Starting with 4 quick studies of the still life, you will focus on composition, mark makings, shape, and value. Moving toward abstraction, you will expand our collage and painting skills while contemplating a still life from observation and layering it with personal imagery. Students are invited to bring 3-5 images that speak to them instinctually.

No prior painting experience is needed. All levels and beginners are welcome!
