About Still Life Outside The Box - Summer School

Tutor- Owen Normand

Course includes full tuition and art materials

This course is designed to encourage students to think beyond the standard vase of flowers and get creative with what a still life painting can be and what it can mean.

Looking at the history of the Still Life genre as well as more unusual takes on the subject, students will look at how composition, subject matter and the use of metaphor can elevate simple depictions of objects to great works of art.

There will be an emphasis on developing ideas past the point of being ordinary to make memorable and meaningful paintings.

​Starting with drawings in charcoal students will explore ideas for paintings which will be worked up into finished oil paintings.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Still Life Outside The Box - Summer School are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
