Shoes

Instructor:  Milena Spacis

Saturday, May 30

11 am - 3 pm EST

 

Shoes can tell us much about a person. From them, we can often tell the wearer’s occupation, personality, tastes and even socio-economic status. They have beautiful and varied forms that are wonderful to paint and can be grouped in so many variations.  A pair of shoes from your closet will be the subject in this fast-paced class in which you will use only three paint colors of your choice. Students are encouraged to work in either oil or acrylic paint, but other available paint media are acceptable if you don’t have access to those at this time.  Instruction will be given in setting up your shoe still life, lighting it, and finding the shape, value and color equivalencies that are possible with your limited three colors. This class is for all levels, although some basic painting experience is helpful.  It will be taught live through Zoom, with some additional resources provided through email or Google Classroom. Demos, as well as group and individual feedback are included. Instructions for using Zoom will be sent prior to the workshop.
