Course Description

ALL LEVELS WELCOME. Learn how to infuse movement and energy into your still life oil paintings. Elizabeth Congdon shows students how to build a dynamic canvas with movement and energy by focussing on a strong composition using line, color, and the interplay of light and shadows. She will demonstrate how to work from the general abstract to the specific details while balancing a loose brushstroke and intentional application of paint. Elizabeth will give you individual instruction based on your level and needs, and you will also benefit by casual group discussion. You may work from a still life of flowers, fruit, and fabric set up for the group, or you may choose to set up your own still life set up from our props or your own, as you develop your own personal style and approach to oil painting.
