Description: 

Many artists are intimidated by objects made of metal and or glass. When handled correctly, these items can look magical and impressive in any painting.  Cate Kauffman will teach her methods for interpreting what one sees when looking at a glass object and how to capture it in paint/pastel. This is an intermediate level class. Sight-Size work will also be taught.

Some previous experience with the medium of your choice is required. The class will work from individual still life set ups so bring a glass object and a metal object. An odd number of items for the still life is recommended; also bring a striped or simple patterned cloth for a drapery. The instructor will also bring items you can add for interest. Bring your paints and both large and small brushes.  Only Odorless Mineral Spirits solvents in a closable jar or can will be permitted in class. No turpentines. 

Pastel artists should bring, in addition to their pastels, a large brush, isopropyl alcohol and a sanded surface that can handle application of the alcohol. Students are also encouraged to bring and use an iPad, camera or phone to take photos during their progress.

Kauffman will demonstrate in the morning of the first day in oils. She will demonstrate in the morning of the second day in pastels. Students will work in their own mediums on both afternoons. Quick studies will be completed first (one hour for each study the first day and one long study in the afternoon on the second). Easels will be available and standing to paint is strongly recommended as students will be instructed to stand back to view and walk forward to paint.
