What’s with this Immersion Workshop?

Get into the Kelli’s mind as she sets up a gallery still life. Watch the painting unfold up close from beginning to end in real time over the week. No short demonstrations. Observe Kelli from preparing her palette, choosing and mixing colors, how much medium she uses to cleaning her brushes. You can ask questions anytime along the way. 

This is STRICTLY LIMITED to only 4 students and will be held in my very own private studio. With my props, my paintings on the walls and my energy in the room this is truly an intimate experience.

How does the Immersion Workshop works?

Each student will have a dedicated still life station and light source provided. You will have an access to Kelli’s Studio Props. Each student will receive guidance and critique on independent work during the week AND each student will receive a complimentary Kelli Folsom original sketch size 8″x10″ and under.

Painting still life has long been a way to learn the fundamentals of painting as it is perhaps the most convenient way to study values, color relationships, form and drawing. This is the first step, but what comes after that? How does one transition from student work to artist? Kelli’s teaching style truly reaches both the beginning and the seasoned painter. She strives to reach the beginner by breaking down artistic language into clear terms that are easily understood. Her experience with still life painting also reaches students who have a grasp on the fundamentals, but are looking for ways to take their still life from great exercises or studies to a higher level of art. Conundrums like what goes together, what to do with the background, how to not overwork the painting and how to set up a still life that tells a story with impact will be solved. Students will gain independent skills by setting up their own still life with relative feedback so they can go back to their own studios with new critical thinking skills. Each student will work at their own pace and at their own skill level. Daily demonstrations, critiques and discussions will be given.
