A still-life workshop focusing on a introduction to working with paint
Workshop Description:

With a focus on fruit, this still-life workshop is a great introduction to working with paint and is the perfect way to gain an understanding of the material and make something you’ll be really proud of. At the end of the session, each participant will have a finished canvas to take home.

What you will learn:

Getting comfortable with materials and creating basic shapes through a series of short drawing techniques

Learning how to draw and curate the shapes practiced at the start of the session

Transferring drawings onto canvas

How to mix acrylic paints and creating a unique colour palette from primary colours

How to create light and dark, as well as depth and perspective

No previous painting experience is necessary, and anyone from beginners to more seasoned painters are welcome. All necessary props and materials will be provided.

About Mia Cathcart:

Mia is an artist living and working in Liverpool. Mia’s interested in the formalities of portraiture painting and the limits of the medium. The connotations, expectations, redundancies and clichés are all relevant to her practice. She tries to challenge the significance that portraiture carries, giving seemingly insignificant images a sense of importance. More recently she’s been exploring ‘flat pack paintings,’ combinations of paintings and how her work exists off the canvas stretcher.

This workshop is part of a series of workshops held by studio members of The Royal Standard, which is external to the organisation’s exhibition and event programme.
