An in-person class is observing and working from live chickens and flowers. The studio is on a small backyard farm, nestled amongst gentle chickens and donkeys. Easels are provided (the art supply list is not). Full-on instruction, painting lectures on color and form, brushwork, composition, and movement.


A photograph session will be included to arrange and capture hi-res images of the hens before they jump off the still life table. Students are encouraged to work both in life and photography. The hows and whys of this will be discussed further in class. For this reason, it is recommended that you bring a tablet, laptop, or viewing device to paint off the photography part.


Teresa will demonstrate the arrangement and placement of flowers while taking essential considerations such as lighting, color, and gesture. She will make some of her photos available to the class, though it is encouraged that you bring a phone camera or something higher end if you have one also to experience life animal photography. This will help you better understand what is involved with working from your chosen and staged references, which is essential for all wildlife, pet, and fine art studio painters alike.
