Second 5 week block "Every Artist Needs Drawing..."
The focus will be on everything you'll ever need to know about STILL LIFE. Learn how to choose objects, set them up [good composition], lighting/shadows, backdrops, capturing proportions and so on; an excellent foundation for beginners. In an effort to touch on symbolism, we will explore the Vanitas [still life painting conveying a message of the meaninglessness of worldly pleasures, the mortality of mankind]; a human skull was the usual subject in the 1600s, we we'll bring this genre into the modern day world [subject matter is your choice]. Students will have their own area to work in, including a lamp so enrol early as space will be limited!
