Workshop Description

It’s easy to associate still lifes with draped tables covered with fruit, flowers, and goblets. But the single object can have more visual power than the most elaborate composition. In this weekend workshop, you’ll learn tips, techniques, and insights based on Gallego’s own fascination with the everyday.
