SCHEDULING NOTE: Because this class meets on Mondays, it will be interrupted a couple of times for MARCH BREAK (March 8-15) and EASTER MONDAY (April 1). The class will run until April 15. Discover your artistic potential with Studio 201’s C240108C: Still Life Painting class. In still-life painting, inanimate objects are explored for the sake of their qualities of form, colour, texture, and composition, and Andrew Hamilton will guide you through the process of creating beautiful still life paintings, from selecting the perfect subject to mastering composition and color. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced artist, this class is perfect for honing your skills. Key topics will include colour theory, colour mixing, composition, and the relationship between light and shadow. As the course proceeds, students will be encouraged to work on their own subject matter in order to apply theory presented in earlier classes. Materials: – Sketch pad and pencils – Canvas and/or other substrates of choice – Pastels or Acrylic or oil paints (no solvents) NOTE: Please do NOT bring CADMIUM or COBALT paint colours, or solvents (for oil paint) with fumes because of their toxicity levels.
