Winter 2019 Workshop Series
Still Life Painting Workshop with Kristen Flemington
Portland based painter Kristen Flemington will lead an informative and experiential painting workshop exploring the fundamentals of still-life painting. We will review the basics of color theory and painting techniques, practice a few brief painting exercises, then complete a small still life painting that participants can take home with them. This workshop is a great introduction to painting or an excellent opportunity to flex well-formed artistic skills. We will be painting with acrylic paint. Supplies will be provided, but if participants would like to bring their own supplies, they are more than welcome to.
Kristen paints what’s around her: her friends and family, flowers, sometimes just the fruit off her counter top. She tries to capture these things simply, in honest and ordinary moments, hoping that, seen in this natural way and with the heart, something of their power or beauty might stand out. Kristen Flemington studied painting at Herron School of Art in Indianapolis and now does so in her studio in Portland, Oregon. She has hosted painting workshops over the past 4 years at Sou’wester and in her home city.
