Workshop: ‘Conquer color and form to create the perfect still life’

Andrew Salgado

An introduction to, or continuation of how to define colour and shape in the still life. Artists will be presented with either a still-life and asked to expand expressionistically and creatively, or asked to bring their own work that they wish to elaborate upon. The goal of this is to learn to free oneself from realism and move into creative expression through colour, imagination, and form.

This workshop will be taught in English, with a max. of 12 participants.
