Still Life Painting Class with Rita Pacheco

May 11 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm


145 N Cora
Ridgway, Colorado 81432


$45 includes instruction and all materials

Create a beautiful impressionist style still life with local artist, Rita Pacheco. Rita has over 30 years of experience, and has a real passion for painting from life. She will set up several still life subjects, including florals and a range of other objects to choose to isolate and paint. We will explore composition, the “blocking in” of a painting and paint application. Students will leave the 2hr workshop with a better understanding of “seeing with an artistic eye” and their finished painting! Ages 10 and up!

All materials and acrylic paints will be provided.*

* Students are welcome to bring their own acrylic or oil paint if they are more comfortable doing so (preferred color palette: titanium white, cad yellow light, yellow ochre, cad red light, burnt sienna, ultramarine blue, rose madder or second choice alizarin crimson). If you’re bringing oil paint, don’t forget to bring an odorless solvent!
