What's Included

Using a Still – Life Assemblage, students in this class will explore ways in which what we see, how we see it, and how we present it to an audience rely on good composition techniques and how those techniques form a visual thought process. Class members will bring objects to add to a collectively assembled still life which will be critiqued, drawn, modified, and redrawn as the elements change. The class will be encouraged to examine the objects for their characteristics, to move about the room, and to exchange their drawings with other class members. All skill levels are welcome. Attend this fun workshop and find out how your perspective changes with the elements. The intent of this workshop is not to produce a finished composition but that is a student option. Supply list: • Medium to large size objects (to add to the collective still life) – consider their shape, texture, size • Large size drawing surface – Newsprint, etc. • Favorite drawing medium • Rubber/Kneadable eraser • Fixatives (if desired)
