Surreal Still Life Oil Painting
Workshop: Surreal Still Life - Oil Painting
Date: Fri 18th Jan 2019
Time: 10am - 3pm
Tutor: Sophie Haythornthwaite
Designed for older children this class will introduce the basic concept of surrealism as an art movement and explore some of its ideas. We will create art based on the juxtaposition of unlikely objects to create images that are strange and mysterious. Why is that fish holding an umbrella? What is an apple doing floating in the sky? Why does that clock look like melted cheese?
We will learn some basic drawing techniques and learn to use oil paints to create a surrealist masterpiece…
Bring some objects that inspire you that don’t usually go together… maybe a shoe with a flower in it, and a violin… maybe a bell, an egg and a feather… or some pictures that inspire you.
And of course…bring your wildest imagination!
