Course Overview
Still life offers the opportunity to use everyday objects and engage with the concerns of composition, form, quality of light and texture, which is why it has remained a popular subject matter throughout the history of art, bringing us to the present with the resurgence of contemporary painters populating the subject today.

This course will explore the technical aspects of painting in oil or acrylic with a study of composition, colour, mixing practice and observation, whilst working with a variety of different still life set ups. Each week developing your skills in painting techniques and the handling of materials, with support and guidance throughout. This class is suitable for beginners and intermediate.
