Description

VIRTUAL STILL-LIFE PAINTING
David Bayus

8 sessions >> Tuesdays, October 3–November 21

7:30–10:30 pm, Studio 14 + DMS2, $350

No prerequisite.

At its most basic definition, still life painting is the depiction of objects based on their qualities of form. So how can painting approach the object when its form is fluid and born from information? This class will engage with traditional painting techniques while developing a basic understanding of current 3D modeling software. Students will create a series of digital renderings, and the information generated by their virtual still lifes will be applied to a series of paintings created by the students using their virtual work as a jumpoff point for further exploration.

If you have any questions regarding materials, please contact Public Education Staff.

What are my transport/parking options getting to San Francisco Art Institute?
All classes meet at 800 Chestnut Street, between Jones and Leavenworth. You can find directions to campus on the SFAI website.

SFAI is located in a residential neighborhood, and free two-hour parking is available on all of the streets immediately surrounding the school. The two-hour restriction cuts off at 9 pm, so evening Public Education students do not need to move their car, unless you arrive prior to 7 pm.

SFAI is easily accessible via public transportation, with Muni bus lines #30 Stockton, and #47 Van Ness located within a few blocks of campus.

I have a question that isn't on this list. Who can I contact?
