Still life Painting Workshop

Nyle Gordon

Columbia, Missouri

November 9-10

Nationally recognized artist Nyle Gordon will be teaching a two day still life oil painting workshop for beginner to intermediate painters. Participants will meet at Brown Hall, Columbia College.  Each day will begin with discussion and demonstration of still life drawing and painting strategies.   During this two day workshop, students will focus on the essentials of realistic painting from life, learning to keep brushwork expressive and painterly.  We will explore fundamentals of color mixing and address composition and still life setup. Questions and discussion are encouraged. Nyle has a casual and inclusive approach to teaching that puts students at ease. Making the rounds to individual students throughout the day will be a priority.
