Event Details

All Levels

Estimated Materials Cost $200

Absolutely anything can be included in a Still Life painting. Robyn will guide you through the process of combining a varied array of objects to produce a dynamic composition whatever your skill level.  Possible subject matter can include ordinary domestic items through to precious family treasures, flowers and plants, interior and exterior views and occasionally the clothed human form. The basics of shape, perspective and composition will be a special focus of this workshop. We will work on design exercises to aid in setting up various arrangements to be painted from life. Acrylic is a very forgiving medium for learning and experimenting.
