ANGELA HARDY – Materials/Supply List
One-day workshops:
Feb. 24, 2024 – Fresh Perspective Still Life Painting (Acrylic)

Artists beginner to advanced. Let’s break out of the traditional concept of still life painting and composition. You will learn to view compositions and subject matters from fresh perspectives. Envision imagery as you had not consider before. Learn how to arrange, crop and light your still life set up. Then effectively sketch in and color block your painting so that you have a solid foundation to build upon.

“If you hear a voice within you say you cannot paint, then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.”~Vincent Van Gogh
