  • 2019 12 Month Challenge Still Life Study

    Studio 23

    Still Life Study: This session will last 4 hours with one break in the middle. Still life drawings are drawings of non-living objects, arranged in a specific way, to create meaning or a visual effect. Common still life objects include things like flowers, fruits, vegetables, and other foods and beverages. This particular practice helps hone skills like perspective, shadows, negative space, depth & so much more. For some this will come naturally, for others it is a discipline. But everyone can benefit from it. This Meetup is on the Sunday following Alameda's 2nd Friday Art Walk. So most of the time it falls on 2nd Sunday, sometimes it falls on the 3rd Sunday. Come get to know other local artists and set time aside to make art with us! 2PM-3:30 Snack, Drink, Draw, Paint. 3:30-4PM Pair in teams to critique each others work. (Optional, no one is forced to share their work.) 4-6PM Complete work. Make sure you leave time for drying if you are painting. What to bring: *Sketchbook, paper or canvas *Paints, pencils, ink, etc *Feel free to bring snacks, drinks although We may also have some snacks/drinks available for a small donation. *Indoor and/or outdoor depending on the number of attendees.
