The desire to paint a beloved houseplant, flowers, or other beautiful organic life can feel limited by the challenges of setting up a still life indoors in the colder seasons. This class will help you construct an inspiring still life using plants from BBG's education collection and other provided subjects. Gesture, compositional movement, and contrast in both texture and mark-making along with light and dark in color are just a few of the thematic ideas that can bring a still life to life in the drearier time of the year. Each class will end with a half-hour group critique. This class is suitable for all levels.
