Floral Still Life Workshop

Students will explore the basics of setting up a poetic still life, with an emphasis on the fleeting beauty of flowers. This will encourage a bold, direct application of paint to capture essential beauty. We will discuss the importance of finding an abstract, visual idea in the set up that is all- important for conveying this beauty to the viewer. Students will experiment with the lush quality of oil paint to find the inherent beauty of thick, opaque lights contrasting with thin, transparent darks. This exploration will help students find their own unique voice. Flowers will be provided, but students are encouraged to bring any still life objects or fruit they would like to paint as well.
