Printable Registration Form
February 4 - 5, 2017
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
This workshop addresses the question of how an artist maintains their momentum from a season of plein air work when it's too cold to paint outdoors. Artists paint from still lifes that are composed of elements that can build on and improve your painting of landscapes. The two-day course involves painting three separate still lifes each day. Each lesson concentrates on developing composition and light effect, with an eye to drawing parallels with landscape composition along the way. Past masters of landscape painting will be cited throughout the course. A supply list will be provided to workshop students.
Cost for 2-session workshop: Members/$216, Non-members/$240
