Dates: October 19 & 20

Location: Springville, UT at Leslie’s private studio / address provided after registration

Learning Focus

This workshop is a two-day intensive study of oil painting. All skill levels are welcome, as Leslie will be working one-on-one with students for the majority of the workshop. 

This course will focus on applying the basic rules of color theory to achieve greater emotion and expression in painting. We will review the theory and psychology of color; practice mixing techniques; and apply what we discover to a small still life. This course will also provide greater insight into oils as a medium, as well as fundamentals such as composition, drawing and edges. We’ll also cover strategies to arrange your still life. 

Leslie will bring her own unique aesthetic and explain how she combines the fundamentals of painting to create pieces that are unique, simple and full of life. 

Daily Schedule

Each morning Leslie will do a group painting demonstration. Following each painting demonstration, the students will set up still life compositions of their own and paint them from life, while receiving one-on-one instruction.
