Still Life Painting, Glass, Metal, and Fabric Workshop with Amanda Lovett

2 Days: Friday, Feb 7, Saturday, Feb 8
10 am – 4 pm, $255
Train your eye to “see” shapes of color and then transfer that information to the canvas. Sometimes all it takes is having someone point out what you should be looking at to solve the puzzle. Participate in exercises that will help strengthen your ability to reduce any object to its simplest form.  Correctly compose and render your scene in precise proportions and perspective and gain a better understanding of the use of values, shapes and edges to portray your 3D image on a 2D surface. Utilizing instruction, demos and hands-on painting, this workshop is kept small enough to insure plenty of one-on-one time with the instructor.
