About the Class

We all have material objects that hold special meaning for us. In this one-day workshop, explore how artists have depicted these objects, considering their own vision and the time when they lived and worked. Learn how the still life moved from playing a supporting role in Renaissance paintings to becoming an important genre in contemporary art.

Capacity: 18
