Working from still life is the perfect way to hone your painting skills, capturing everyday objects as accurately as possible. Creating from real life is an amazing way to hone observational skills. When you paint from life, you interact with the subject first-hand. As opposed to using photographs (where visual information is displayed on a flat surface), being able to actually interact with the subject brings us a wealth of information that will enhance our work in a variety of ways. This method provides originality to art that simply cannot be achieved when using a photograph as a reference. For teens new to painting, this course will help you develop confidence and in a few short weeks you will be able to create dynamic paintings on canvas. 

In this course you will:
