ABOUT THIS CLASS:
Still Life suggests human life. The arrangement of objects in a painting imply the person(s) who placed them there, giving rise to the thought of what happened before and what will happen next. Paint a narrative still life that Zhang creates, then, learn to tell your own story with objects of your own.
Students will gain better painting skills, especially in arranging a composition, the use of color, showing form, and brushwork.
Suitable for all levels. Ages 15+
