“Hybrid” Zoom & In-Person Still Life Workshop: Flowers Revisited

December 2, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 2:00 pm


Dear Painters,

There’s often a fine edge between representation and abstraction. It can be challenging to hold on to representation as we try to get at the feeling or essence of a subject. Vice versa it’s often challenging to get more abstract as try to faithfully represent our subject. Let’s dance together on that edge while painting flowers – and focusing on their essence, not only their form.

This is a still life workshop where we’ll paint from life. Up to 5 of you (vaccinated) can be in my studio at Hunters Point Shipyard and another 5 could be on Zoom, painting from your own still life set-ups. Last time we did this (September) it seemed to work great. Those that come to the studio should be vaccinated and we’ll be masked with good airflow and air purification.

In this one-day workshop we’ll focus on shapes, composition, color and brushwork. We’ll warm up with some contour drawing and thumbnail sketches in paint before tackling our subjects.

All painting mediums are welcome.

A materials list will be sent to you as soon as you register. I’ll also be sending some good examples from contemporary painters of this kind of approach.

The cost of the workshop is $80.This amount will be fully refundable up to 3 days prior to the workshop; after that the registration fee is non-refundable.

REGISTRATION is a two step process:

1) Send me an email and let me know you’re planning to register so I can put your name on the list.

2) Send me your payment on either PayPal (pay to bruce@brucekatzstudio.com) or Venmo (pay to @Bruce-Katz-9)  or by check. I’ll send you my address if you need it.

Questions? Let me know!
