Colourful Cubist Inspired Still Life Painting


Start date: 2nd Apr 2020

Time: 09:15 - 14:15

Cost: £32

Day: Thursday

Duration: 1 weeks

Tutor: Vicki Street

Course code: 20SP13

This course is suitable for all abilities, including beginners.

All materials will be provided, but please bring 2 or 3 still-life objects if you can, to add to our selection, e.g. a bottle, vase, bowl, piece of fruit, perhaps a patterned cloth.

The course aims to focus attention on the importance of composition in painting and to encourage students to be adventurous in their use of colour and pattern in order to produce a well-structured and vibrant still-life painting.

We'll start the day by looking at some examples of Cubist paintings and also work by other artists who have been influenced by Cubism. Then we'll make some small compositional studies from selected objects, finally making a larger painting in acrylic paint.
