Isn’t this adorable?

I bought the little white face-vase (it was part of a larger set) in May while in China, and the flowers are from a Fairy Tale set on Wednesday… photo by our studio assistant, Matisse!

“Table Top: Drawing & Painting” Online Class with Diane Culhane
Drawing & Painting Two-Week Onlin Class – $85
Repeat Session: November 3 – 14, 2014

Diane Culhane is working this fall on a new class for us, but in the meantime she agreed to re-run her wonderful two-week class: “Table Top: Drawing & Painting.”

Diane writes in her class description:

“Table Top” is a term I have created to explore the traditional “Still Lifes” within our contemporary lives. Joining the definition of still life: a visual fine art term, representational painting or drawing of inanimate objects, such as fruits, flowers, etc. ”Table Tops” will echo the same type of inanimate objects.

Inside of this class, the foundation will be set based on fabulous old master’s still life paintings, such as; cubist painter Paul Cezanne, Pierre Bonnard, and Matisse.

Students – you – will transform your experience with the tradition of still life, practiced by many throughout the ages, into something uniquely all your own, changed by imaginative approaches via various innovative approaches in this class.

Starting with drawing, during a dining experience, ending up with acrylic painting. Line will be deeply explored and color of prismacolor pencils too on to various surfaces.

I hope you will join Diane this time around… and perfect timing with the holidays upon us. For details: http://www.carlasonheim.com/a-brand-new-class-by-diane-culhane/
