Still Life, Active Mind: Painting the Still Life, is taught for 2.5 days on September 17-19 by James Brandess and costs $190.

Painting the still life is about seeing. We will work with light, color, shape, and value to create vibrant paintings that are anything but still. The primary medium used in this workshop will be oil paints, but students are welcome to experiment with other media. This class will focus on observation and application. 

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)!
