Fort Bend County Libraries’ Sienna Branch Library will present a 4-part introductory workshop on “Still-Life Painting with Acrylics” in July. The workshop will take place on Mondays, July 3, 10, 17, and 24, from 3:00 to 6:00 pm, in the Multi-Purpose Room of the library, located at 8411 Sienna Springs Blvd in Missouri City.
Library staff member Hayley Kyle will provide a basic introduction to painting still-life scenes with acrylic paints for anyone who is considering starting a new hobby. The program will be presented in a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere, where beginning artists can feel free to explore their creativity.
The workshop will focus on composition, color, and form. It will also encourage a personal interpretation of modern still life which will assist the student in strengthening their own personal style. Each class will build upon skills learned in the earlier sessions.
All materials for this workshop will be provided through the generous support of the Friends of the Sienna Branch Library. Proceeds from the Friends of the Library book sales and annual membership dues help to underwrite the costs of special programming and various cultural events at the library.
If participants already have their own supplies, they are welcome to bring them.
Intended for adults aged 18 and above, the class is free and open to the public. Seating is limited, however, and reservations are required.
