Back to basics. This workshop will cover the nuts and bolts of still life painting: paint handling, value, color and composition. Group demonstration and individualized instruction tailored to the strengths of each artist will be provided. Demonstrations are in oil but acrylic painters are welcome.
Use this workshop as an opportunity to get started with oil painting or to deepen your current painting practice.
We will break for lunch from 1-2PM, students can bring their own, visit a nearby cafe and/or stroll around Providence College campus.
I will provide 6”x6” canvases and panels
