Still Life Drawing and Painting with Sarah F. Burns

Egg and Oak

Oil Painting by Sarah F Burns

Sarah’s classes are designed to grow students’ ability to realize their own artistic vision.  Class focuses on timeless principles of drawing and painting that apply to any style of artwork.  These principles apply to any representational subject.  In this class the subject of focus is Still Life.  Students will be able to set up their own still life with Sarah’s guidance with the aim of building skills in the following areas:

  • Proportion
  • Placement
  • Linear Perspective
  • Atmospheric Perspective
  • Structure
  • Values/Tones
  • Understanding Light, Shadow
  • Color
  • Use of materials
  • Anatomy
  • Character
  • Composition

These skills will apply to every single piece of representational artwork students will make in the future.  It lays a strong foundation for beginners and  hones the skill of advanced artists.

This ten week course includes powerpoint lectures with examples of the principles by master artists, group demonstrations by Sarah, and one on one feedback with each student.  Students will have ample time for working in class and the possibility of coming in outside of class to spend extra time on their project.

Materials:  Because the skills apply to every type of medium, students are welcome to choose the ones they prefer.  All projects start with drawing, as this is the easiest, cleanest and most portable way to develop the skills.  Oils are Sarah’s preferred painting media, and she can offer more technical advice with this material, but students who are familiar or prefer another media, such as watercolor, acrylic or pastel are very welcome to do so. Some students prefer to draw the entire session, and that can be very beneficial, especially for beginners.

Limited to 7 students, so sign up right away!
