Ken Cadwallader Still-Life Painting Class

Ken Cadwallader
Still-Life Painting Class

You will be on "high alert" with all your faculties functioning on the maximum level as you discover how training in still-life painting brings all the crucial aspects of painting into play. This five-week class will focus on the core principles of painting from life and painting what you see with instruction custom-tailored for the individual's specific needs from beginner to pro. Experience demonstrations and discussions before each day's work and gain the insight needed to begin a painting. Review the fundamentals of painting: drawing, value, color, and edge, and how they work together to convey your vision to the viewer. Study how to organize warm and cool colors to represent nature’s harmony. Learn to simplify what you see and break down a painting into manageable pieces. Receive valuable feedback from the instructor and your classmates in daily discussions while learning the questions to ask yourself in order to critique your own work. Ken will demo in oils but all mediums are welcome. Space is limited, so register soon. For questions or to register, contact Kathy at

Hope to see you there!!!
