COURSES / MASTERCLASSES / WORKSHOPS

Masterclasses are most beneficial for the person who has previous experience in painting, and are at an intermediate or advanced level of artistic ability. Instructors are experts in the subject areas which they teach, and students will be learning content at a high-level. It is the instructor’s qualifications and vast experience in their respective areas which is the main factor that sets these classes apart, and that ultimately will be the main benefit these types of classes offer.

Realistic Still Life Masterclass with Klaas Hendrik Hart

Dates & Time:
Nov 17, 2018 from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm (3 hours),
Nov 18, 2018 from 11:00 am - 5:00 pm (6 hours).


Introduction
: Using still life as its subject, this master class will focus on describing concepts of good painting practices and how to achieve them. The success of a good painting depends on a sound understanding and performance of each stage of the painting process. Any one stage can be seen as simple in and of itself, but it is the combined effect that is impactful. If each stage is not successfully executed in succession, it is difficult to go back and fix after the fact. As you progress through the stages with care, the cumulative effect creates a strong and convincing result.
