Thomas Kegler, will be teaching a one-day still life work- shop centered around oil techniques for all levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced students. The day will focus instruction on materials, composition, approaches, and various painting techniques.
This one-day workshop will focus on developing a still life composition using oil paint. Concept, value, edges, composition, color, and brush handling will be presented in a demonstration and hands-on practice. The day will focus instruction on materials, composition, approaches, and painting techniques. Although students are encouraged to work in the medium of their choice, oil will be used and presented. Acrylic, watercolor and drawing techniques will not be addressed, but you will be able to apply some of the concepts and techniques. Students will see a demonstration as Kegler creates a still life in oil during the morning session. Students will then have an opportunity to set up their own composition and delve into their own paintings. Thomas will give occasional demonstrations as need-be during the afternoon student painting session. He will also circulate as students paint giving some individual suggestions as time allows.
Since painting is such a personal activity and there is such 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. Please click for the Supply List. Lunch will not be supplied. Please feel free to bring a bagged lunch or something to snack on.
