What is the difference between still life and arrangement of objects? 

In the series of 3 sessions, we will offer a drawing environment with an arrangement of objects designed to give discussion in theory and philosophy of the object and aesthetic beauty as well as demonstration in key areas such as proportion, perspective, line, gesture, tone and color. 

Object arrangement permeates with a life beyond the ordinary or mundane.The way objects are depicted can evoke a wide variety of emotions, depending on their arrangement, as well as the lighting, color choice, and handling of the drawing medium. 

The sessions are open to those with all drawing abilities. Join our evening sessions to explore the beauty of still life arrangement and engage in aesthetics from a critical perspective.
