Kicking off our Summer Art Class Series, Gallery Lucid is hosting a dynamic, 3-part still life painting class with a twist and an end goal of creating a still life painting which incorporates each artist's choice of visionary, fantasy, psychedelic, or abstract painting. The workshop is being taught by instructor and visionary artist Greg Pettit. The three weekly classes begin Thursday, June 21st, 2018 and will be from 6pm to 10pm each night ($250 for all 3 evenings, together).
Some snacks and beverages will be provided and Black Star Coop is directly across the street if the needs become greater.

WORKSHOP DETAILS from Greg Pettit:
"The workshop will be a Still Life Class for beginners, intermediate, or advanced painting students centered on challenging students to create their own references and then using those to incorporate elements of realism into fantasy, visionary, or even abstract painting. (I'll be teaching from the perspective of using acrylics, but if you are a die hard oil painter that's fine, too.) Observational painting from life is a great way for honing the fundamental skills needed to take one's painting technique to a higher level. This WON'T be painting bowls of fruit or flower vases.
"Each student will create their own diorama by constructing a scene out of various objects and materials that will serve as a template to base their paintings off of. I will walk each student through the steps of constructing a reference with lighting, choosing and developing a composition, creating an underpainting, and working in color.
"In the first class the student will construct a reference that they can use as their subject, make some thumbnail drawings of possible compositions, and then work on a 3 tone monochromatic underpainting.
...To a very unique healing center encased within an art gallery specializing in visionary, surrealism, and psychedelic art.
