Still Life Painting
10 Days, July 22nd - August 2nd 10:00 - 5:00, one hour lunch break. Cost: $1150.00
Instructor: Christina Mastrangelo
Students will learn how to approach an oil painting from start to finish. We start with drawing the still life in the sight-size method, transfer it to canvas, and paint in layers until the objects have form and detail. This course teaches traditional atelier-style methods, from using a campitura, to dead color, first painting, and second painting, all working from life. Demonstrations will be given on the layout & methodical uses of the full-color palette, as well as lectures and handouts on mediums, steps of the process, hue/value/chroma, color mixing, palette care, and varnishing. The goal of the course is to understand the observational painting process and come away with a realistic still-life painting.
This course is recommended for artists looking to create more realistic work. Prior experience with painting in oil is not necessary. This is a very logical, academic course; everything learned here will translate well into drawing or painting any subject from life.
