Get a new perspective on the still life as well as great tips for bringing inspiration to your own studio practice.

You will work on both quick, fun exercises and longer duration paintings. Sarah will demonstrate her process to the class and there will be plenty of time for her to work with each student individually.

Begin your oil painting journey or give your skills a work out!

Painters of all levels are welcome.

About Sarah

Sarah Sedwick is a prolific painter of still life, inspired by color combinations and perceptual effects. All are painted from life. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Sarah earned a BFA in Illustration from The Maryland Institute, College of Art in 2001. Based in Oregon, USA, she has been teaching workshops around the USA on alla prima still life and portrait since 2013, and also conducts an online art mentorship program. This is the first time she has taught in Europe. Her teaching philosophy is simple: the more you paint, the more you improve - so removing the blocks that keep us from the canvas is key. Loosen up, let go of perfectionism, and watch the results unfold.
