SKU: WS12 Category:


Learn the fundamentals of composition in figure or still life

9am – 4:30pm (lunch from noon to 1:30pm)

The figure students will focus on composing the clothed and nude figure in an environment. We are encouraging students to paint larger and take their starts to completion. However, there will be flexibility for students to do numerous “interior studies” instead, but all will be encouraged to do more than a portrait by putting the model in an environment.

The still life students will focus on the importance of getting an idea in the set up. Students will then learn what it means to continue to paint that idea as they develop the painting.

No matter which subject matter you choose, all painting students will begin to understand what it means to paint the concept in oil.

Painting Demonstrations

All the instructors will do demonstrations to help further explain what they are teaching during class hours. The first demonstration will begin the night prior to the first class to orient students to the week. Then the week will be full of dual and individual demonstrations on painting still life, portrait and the figure. Learning happens more easily when students see the instructor tackle the same problems that they have struggled with in class.

Accommodations and Meals

For those students staying at The Lodge—an updated Southwestern hotel sitting atop a hill overlooking Santa Fe—classes will be just moments away each morning after enjoying a complimentary breakfast in the hotel’s restaurant. Beverages and snacks will be provided throughout the day in a break room for the students’ convenience and comfort. The hotel also has a hot tub and two fireplaces—one outdoors and one in the lobby—for the students’ use, as well as frequent shuttles to Santa Fe’s historic downtown plaza. Students can either bring their own lunch, drive to many nearby luncheon places or take the shuttle to nearby shopping malls for lunch, which will be from noon to 1:30pm every day.

The exact schedules will be announced about a month before the workshop begins.
