Maggie Siner: 3 Day Still Life Workshop: Touch of the Brush. January 27-29, 2020. 9:30 am-4:30 pm


9:30 am-4:30 pm
Limit: 15 students
Maggie will present her Touch of the Brush lecture to students the morning of the first day. Class will likely end at 5 or 5:30 pm on Monday.

Principles of composition involve much more than a system of rules or the placement of objects.   Composition is the entire relationship of parts to whole, from the individual brushstroke to the largest shape. Brushstrokes themselves, far from being just surface texture, are carriers of direction and intent: every mark is part of the composition creating structure and meaning in painting.   It’s all about connections and creating movements through the rectangle.  

This oil painting workshop will focus on the gesture of brushwork and its role in making strong compositions.  Work will be from still life.
