Diane Culhane, still life in progressTable Top Still Lifes with Diane Culhane

When: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, November 8
Where: Hyla Middle School
Cost: $115, BAC members $100, students $90

Diane coined the term “Table Top” to merge the traditional definition of “still life” with the new ways in which still lifes can take on meaning in our contemporary lives.

In this class, Diane will set a foundation based on paintings by masters of the form including Paul Cezanne, Pierre Bonnard, and Henri Matisse. You’ll begin with drawing and end with acrylic painting, placing an emphasis on line and exploring the use of prismacolor pencils to apply glorious color to various surfaces.

Diane’s innovative, imaginative approaches will help you transform the tradition of still life into something uniquely your own.

See. Experience. Draw. Color. Paint.
