Observational Drawing & Painting: Still Life & Figures

Observational Drawing & Painting: Still Life & Figures

Ages 7-11

Learn to draw and paint many different types of still lives! Immerse yourself in different rendering styles, from contour drawing to cross-hatching to stippling. We will discuss color theory and put our new knowledge to use when drawing and painting our still lives. Be inspired by artists like Holly Coulis, Manny Farber, Georgia O’Keefe, and Giorgio Morandi. Students will be encouraged to think about what a still life can say about the time that we live in. We will additionally take a tour of the work of artist Alison Saar, whose exhibition Of Aether and Earthe is currently on view at the Armory, and draw inspiration from her art as we create our own unique pieces.

All materials are included in the price of the class. Masks are required inside the Armory for all students and visitors. With few exceptions, students age 12 and up must show proof of full vaccination on the first day of class. Please read our onsite class safety protocols here.
