Creating A Still Life

February 28, 2021 @ 2:00 pm

Join Domenica for a few fun hours of Creating a Still Life! ✍️
Participants will learn via a Zoom Class the fundamentals of setting up an interesting still life composition and drawing from it. We will talk about meaningful objects, lighting considerations, composition, and the basics of sketching & drawing.
This class is helpful and fun for people of any age! We would recommend a skill-level of intermediate and higher.
This class can be helpful for painters, sketch/drawing artists, and more.
Participants are encouraged to set up their own still life scene but are free to draw from what I set up during the zoom.
Class Outline
-Discussion about considering the objects that go into setting up a still life.
-Set up a still life and learn to light the scene in dynamic ways, while giving some time for students to the same if they chose to set up their own.
-Discussion about composition and choosing what part of the display to draw.
-Breaking down broad forms and color values in the composition to make an initial sketch.
-Time drawing in details and discussing progress & techniques with students as they work.
-Discussion about making art with what’s on hand.
