Six Wednesdays, January 23 - February 27
For Ages 18+
Edwin Deakin’s paintings represent an aesthetic evolution in California art, and the subjects of his paintings at the Crocker range from decorative objects to intimate nature settings. For this class, the focus will be on Deakin’s specialty: still life against stone walls. Students will spend time sketching in the galleries and painting in the studios as they render architecture and still life subjects. Participants will gain skill in acrylic painting and use established guidelines to portray realistic scenes.
