About the class
Explore ‘Still Life’ and ‘Life Stilled’
7 – 13 Jan 18
Skill: Beginner to Advanced

In this class you will discuss and use renown artists as creative models for the creation of a series ‘Still Lifes’ and works the express ‘Stillness’.
First you will look at ‘Still Life’ through the eyes of two artists, Henri Matisse and Margaret Olley. Both artists took delight in arranging a group of objects into unusual compositions.
Then you will explore the world of ‘Life Stilled’, turning to the Dutch painter, Jan Vermeer and the Australian painter, Brian Dunlop for inspiration. Both artists produced work that has a subdued, quiet stillness.
