Students have the rare opportunity to learn still life and composition painting techniques from an internationally known Russian master painter – Julia Kostsova. The new skills and knowledge of techniques with color and tone students acquire from this class will improve their painting ability regardless of their current skill level. Participants will thrive in a classroom environment where each student is given individual attention so that he/she can achieve higher excellence in the pursuit of fine art painting. The technical goal is to learn to mix colors, to understand the influence of colors on each other, and to perfect the impressionistic technique. In this workshop students will create and unusual still life composition; a top side view that will then be transferred to give the impression of sitting in the park on the grass having breakfast. Each student will acquire a greater knowledge as well as confidence in his/her own ability to paint following the methods of the French masters.
