Contemporary Still Life Painting & Wine
Gather your friends and enjoy a fun filled night of carefree painting while sipping on a glass of wine in our beautiful studio space.
During this class you will learn observational skills around form, colour and composition to enable you to create a beautiful painting from a still life arrangement.
Using pencil and acrylic paints, this class is perfect for absolute beginners through to painters who want to keep building upon on their existing skills.
Each student will come away with a full painting completed in the class, based on elements of a curated selection of botanical specimens.
What you'll need to bring: a vessel! Whether that's a vase or a favourite mug. You'll be placing your botanical sprig in this vessel to paint it, so it can be something sentimental, or just something you like the shape of.
This class is led by professional artist Melanie Caple
Melanie graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art (Painting) from RMIT in 2012, and holds a Masters of Arts Management.
As an artist, curator and arts manager Melanie has worked in multiple capacities within the arts industry.
