Two Approaches to the Contemporary Still Life

Skill level: all levels

Workshop is full; please email to be put on the wait list

Join Oregon artist Sarah Sedwick and Connecticut artist Todd M. Casey, author of the bestselling book The Art of Still Life, for two unique takes on the alla prima still life! You will experience two days of instruction from each artist, including slideshows, painting, drawing, and still life setup demonstrations, and daily joint critiques.


During the first two days, you will learn Sarah’s favorite ways to loosen up your paintings and energize your brushwork, creating a finished piece from a fun, colorful still life. Next, you will get two days of insight into Todd’s process for still life setup using the props of your choice, focusing on lighting, and creating form on your canvas. Both artists will address composition design, color mixing, and edges - and you will have plenty of painting time, creating two finished pieces, as well as several quick, lively studies.


Working with a split-primary palette simplifies that materials list, and free samples of Sarah and Todd’s favorite products will be provided for all.
