Still life is one of the most timeless and fascinating things to paint, with an endless variety. Nearly every artist has explored it, and it’s a great way to build your painting skills. This fun one-day session is a deep dive into this popular and rewarding subject for art.

This class is for everyone — from beginners who want help getting started, to experienced artists looking to refine their work. Still life offers great lessons in composition and perspective, light source, value and contrast. We will explore key issues of painting and art-making, including brushwork technique, color theory, style, and storytelling — with an emphasis on fun.

You can use acrylics, oils, watercolors, pastels — whatever you like. Toaa will have lots of interesting still life arrangements and images for you to choose from, and you can also bring your own.

Toaa will demonstrate and explain methods and techniques for the group, and everyone will also receive individual attention and guidance.
