Featured Artist Workshop with Patrick Saunders

Jepson Center

The painted still life tells a story through the composition and the elements represented, requiring a balance of spontaneity and accuracy, a perfect subject to practice adding energy and excitement to all your paintings. Learn about choosing a subject, composition, values, color temperature, simplification, how to start, and when to stop. Each day will include a full demonstration followed by opportunities to create multiple paintings, with frequent one-on-one instruction.
