Event description

Description

Discover the beauty of constructing form through color relationships and mark making in oils. In this 5 hour workshop, Jason provides clear and accessible guidance to making still life* painting approachable and expressive. All skills-levels welcome, but no experience is necessary. Let's make some marks and have fun! Feel free to bring in little objects of your choice, with the option of incorporating any of my contributions. This is an excellent opportunity for painting enthusiasts to design compositions involving objects of significance, and become personally invested in their works. The idea is to keep it small. Like a little keepsake.

All painting supplies are provided. But bring a roll of paper towels (as it gets messy) and a lunch. 10% discount for members of Gallery 1070!

*A still life (plural still lifes) is a work of art depicting mostly inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which may be either natural (food, flowers, dead animals, plants, rocks, or shells) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewelry, coins, pipes, etc).
