Floral Still Life Workshop with Jacqueline Kamin
Students will explore the basics of setting up a poetic still life, with an emphasis on the fleeting beauty of flowers. This will encourage a bold, direct application of paint to capture essential beauty. We will discuss the importance of finding an abstract, visual idea in the set up that is all- important for conveying this beauty to the viewer. Students will experiment with the lush quality of oil paint to find the inherent beauty of thick, opaque lights contrasting with thin, transparent darks. This exploration will help students find their own unique voice.
Flowers will be provided, but students are encouraged to bring any still life objects or fruit they would like to paint as well.

Jacqueline Kamin’s illustrious career was nurtured at the Corcoran Museum School and later at the Sculpture Studio and the Art Students League in New York. Her poetic and painterly style developed early on and soon became recognized by many prestigious art organizations through awards and juried shows at the Bowers Museum, the Salmagundi Club, the California Art Club and Oil Painters of America.
Her work was included in several internationally-known art expositions held in Hong Kong and New York City as well as the National Museum for Women Artists in her home town, Washington, D.C. She is past president of American Women Artists and brought new energy to the organization with her special vision for women in the art world today.
Kamin has been featured in Southwest Art and Art of the West and has her work in such collections as U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer, Entrepreneur Magazine, Manocherian Brothers of New York, and Big Horn Westinghouse Corporation. As a way of sharing her artistic passion, she continues to teach nationally for Bright Light Fine Art Workshops. Currently her work can be seen at the Saks Gallery in Denver, Co. and the Lilypad Gallery in Rhode Island and Minn. She will teach again this coming year at BAY Area Classcial Artist Atelier.
