Food Styling Basics, is taught September 20th from 10AM to 5PM by Emory Hall costs $120.

Have you ever wondered how in fast food commercials they stack a cheeseburger so high and make each shred of lettuce, slice of cheese or juicy tomato look fresh, tantalizing and… so, so fake? Do they even use shaving cream anymore!?! How do they even get those little water droplets on the tomato? If these are some of the questions you’ve ever thought while watching food commercials and wondering about what food styling even is, then this is your ideal workshop. This workshop will cover some basics in food styling for commercial and editorial photo shoots. All edible techniques, no glue required. You will learn how to prepare to style a dish, compose a plate of food, find the best angles of light, and make a beautiful nicoise salad fit for #instagram. Bring your own tweezers! All food materials will be provided.

*Note - this workshop will not cover photography; it will focus solely on food styling. 

Art on the Meadow is a unique program, providing an intergenerational space for students to come together in the inspiring natural environment at Ox-Bow for half day, one day, or short term multi-day classes. Our workshops are geared toward teen and adult makers of all experience levels, age 13 and up. Art on the Meadow workshops offer participants an opportunity to connect traditional art and craft processes with contemporary ideas and approaches to artmaking. We strive for our workshops to be imaginatively challenging and logistically accessible for our West Michigan neighbors. Come jump into Ox-Bow’s creative community (and maybe even into our beautiful lagoon)!
