Still Life in Layers Painting workshop
with Artist, Chris Liberti
Friday, April 28th from 10:00am – 4:00pm
The Roycroft Campus – 21 South Grove St. East Aurora, NY
Chris Liberti will be teaching a one-day workshop centered around constructing a still life painting in layers using a limited palette in both acrylic and oil paint. The course is designed for all levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced students. The day will focus instruction on materials, composition, approaches, and various painting techniques.
Working with both acrylic and oil paint, we’ll take advantage of the quick drying properties of acrylics on our first layer. We will then move to oils for the second half of the day for their pliability and complexities. There will be a focus on constructing a painting by merging an intuitive approach with a methodical one. Investigating how we can allow the painting to build on its own through atmosphere and shape. The limited palette will force us to expand our knowledge of color theory with the added benefit of keeping things simple.
Since painting is a personal activity with a large variety of materials available, no supplies will be provided. Instead, students are asked to purchase or bring the materials that meet their individual tastes. All materials and mediums will be “non-hazardous”. We will be using a limited palette with both mediums, please click for the Supply List. Lunch will not be supplied. Please feel free to bring a bagged lunch or something to snack on.
