The NAGB is pleased to engage the dynamic duo of painting, Jackson and Bernard Petit, who will lead a hands-on workshop based on their skilled practise in the painting genre which comes with over 15 years of experience. Participants will be guided through the completion of an acrylic painting. This two-day workshop will also introduce students to key fundamentals of good picture making, from the technical to the conceptual with still life as the subject matter. Some of the principles discussed throughout the workshop will be composition, accuracy in drawing, color and color theory, understanding form and modeling, lighting and materials. The work and knowledge explored during the workshop can be translated to any genre of painting.
