319JP: Still Life in Watercolor with JoAnn Pippin
Still Life in the Kitchen: A Watercolor Adventure
Level: Watercolorists with some experience
Monday, Feb. 19 – Wednesday, Feb 21 (10 am – 1 pm)
Thursday, Feb 22 (see below)
Artist JoAnn Pippin invites you to join her in creating a watercolor still life of a favorite food, entrée, or recipe. Perhaps you have a family recipe you want to pass on, a photo of a special dish you prepared, or a food your family is fond of. Why not carry it a step further and paint the ingredients and equipment for your mom’s apple pie, that beautiful entrée from your favorite restaurant, or the attractive display of items from the farmers’ market?
We will explore watercolor techniques that can be used to illustrate food, as well as principles of still life set up. For the first class, JoAnn will bring items for a still life based on one of her favorite recipes. We will work on painting it in class but plan on finishing it at home prior to the next class. For the second class, students should bring a cuisine-related picture to paint, or possibly live items for a still life set up. In the third class, we will finish up our projects or start with a new photo.
Thursday (10-1pm) is an optional fourth day if the students are interested.
A supply list is available, but you should start by bringing the paints and equipment that you have; JoAnn will help you compare what you have to what you might need. The Florence Thomas School sells quality art supplies, so you be able to buy and restock after the first class.
