Short demonstrations followed by plenty of class work time will ignite a passion for still lifepainting as students see their colorful paintings take shape. Participants will learn the skills needed to create believable and realistic still life paintings that are loaded with impressive details.

Lisa will discuss developing keen observation skills, color selection, pastel application, and she will disclose her secrets for handling difficult surfaces such as glass or metal—giving special attention to this area.

"I love people.  I love painting.  I love painting people.  Put those three statements together and you have the perfect combination for a portrait painter which is exactly what I have endeavored to be my whole life.  As a small child I was inspired by my grandmother, a self taught artist who seemed to also enjoy portrait painting.  I recall spending hours with her in her studio hanging on to her every tip, trick, demonstration or suggestion.  My greatest hope was to be as good a painter as she was and my favorite past time was trying to do just that."
