Location:  The Hungerford

1115 E. Main St. Rochester NY 14609

Studio 458

9am-4pm with an hour lunch break


This workshop focusing on the art of still life painting (oil) will be five days, 9am-4pm daily with an hour lunch break. Each workshop participant will be responsible for providing their own still life props. Flowers will be provided by the Rochester Art Club. In this workshop, Elizabeth will discuss the concept of painting strong light and shadows, along with painting with emotion and not just copying what is seen. Elizabeth will do daily demonstrations and discuss important concepts such as composition, temperature changes, edges, and seeing things as shapes. There will be a strong emphasis on painting florals and vases.

Our annual RAC Signature member exhibition will be held at the Bevier Gallery at RIT. When submitting your information for registration please note that things are different this time. There is no longer a registration form but instead a separate file for the RIT staff. This form must accompany your check payable to the Rochester Art Club (also note slight increase in the fee per entry). We need one form per painting/sculpture entered. Be sure to save your painting/sculpture ID tags for receiving. All pieces must be labeled.
