Still Life

The Four Basic Forms: An 8-week Class focused on understanding how light interacts with, and defines form in a still life setting.

Instructor: Emma Hirst

Beginning Saturday’s July 13th to August 31st, 10am - 1pm

This course will focus solely on the basic geometric forms in order to hone material control and an understanding of light. Students will learn how to communicate form in 2 dimensions using oil paint. The assignments and goals in this course are similar to Bargue repetitions and cast drawings, with less complexities and aesthetic aspects, and more focus on still life fundamentals. Assignments will involve conceptual exercises as well as working from observation. The first 4 weeks will be focused on one of each of the 4 forms, 1 per day, and the class will finish with a simple still life painting done in four sessions with my help and guidance. This class is a great option for those who want the skill development of a classical program with emphasis on still life. All levels welcome.
