Still Life in Chiaroscuro with Dáša Pierce
September 26 : 9:30 am - 4:30 pm$80
Learn the secrets of the great masters such as DaVinci, Rembrandt, Caravaggio, Leffel, and others in creating powerful paintings! Chiaroscuro is the bold contrast of dark and light as a method of painting that has been used by artists since the renaissance to create drama and the illusion of volume in modeling objects. We will explore and emulate this dramatic way of painting to create our own masterpiece.
GOALS: The goal is to complete a chiaroscuro painting with a focus on dramatic lighting effect. We will focus on painting not the objects, but rather the abstract beauty of the light emerging from the darkness. Each weekly lesson will include demos and prepare us for each next step.
