Creating a Compelling Still Life Painting: 1-Day Workshop
About the instructor: Bruce has been painting and drawing since childhood, and seeks to interpret through these media the beauty and magic in the world around us.
He paints in a representational, but impressionistic, style and focuses on landscape/cityscape, still life and figure. He’s been trained as an artist at The Art Students League in New York City and at City College in San Francisco, as well as privately along the way. In recent years, he has studied “plein air” landscape painting with some of the top regional painters.
Bruce lives in San Francisco and has a studio at Hunters Point Shipyard and currently gives workshops in both plein air landscape and studio still life painting.
He shows his work at the SFMOMA Artists Gallery, at STUDIO Gallery and Arc Gallery, all in SF. He also has several Open Studios shows at the Shipyard throughout the year. Private appointments at his studio are also welcome.

Title: Creating a Compelling Still Life Painting:
Instructor: Bruce Katz
Dates: March 3
Day & Time: Saturday, 9:30 am – 3:00 pm
Description: Join me for this 1-day workshop where I'll teach the process of painting a still life subject from life. I'll work with you individually, in a hands-on, step-by-step fashion, guiding you from start to finish and focusing on aspects of the process. The workshop is geared for beginning and intermediate painters; those who haven't begun painting and those who want to continue to develop their painting skills.
The workshop will emphasize the essential elements of creating compelling still life paintings: composition, drawing, color and value. The goal is that you’ll leave with the confidence and knowledge to continue to develop as a painter.
I'll be doing several demonstration paintings during the day, at the start of each step of the process. Following those demonstrations, you’ll be working on your paintings as I come around and offer assistance.
Fees: $75 Members; $80 Non-members
