Adult Studio Workshop | Colorful Still Lifes with Henry Finkelstein

Learn how to create a colorful still life with National Academician and painter Henry Finkelstein! Participants will use pastels to work directly from observation to explore color and discover how personal interpretation of color informs a work. Color is relative, and even when an artist is being "faithful" to what they see it can be manipulated to express space, light, and volume. In this workshop Finkelstein will guide participants in how to use color to their advantage and how color has been expressed by artists historically.

Basic drawing skills are recommended; supplies included. Participants are welcome to stay for Finkelstein's lecture following the workshop at no additional cost.

Henry Finkelstein has been teaching painting and drawing for over thirty years. He has been on the faculty at the National Academy of Design, New York, NY since 1996 and has been teaching at the Art Students League, New York, since 2004. Finkelstein holds an MFA in Painting from Yale University School of Art and a BFA from Cooper Union. He has received numerous awards for his work including the Carnegie Prize, National Academy of Design Annual Exhibition 2003, Julius Hallgarten Prize, National Academy of Design 1988, Fulbright Fellowship, Painting, Italy 1983–84, and many others.
