This workshop will focus on Trompe l’oeil, a technique that has been used for centuries to “deceive the eye.” Students will learn to apply these techniques to create pieces that reach a depth that at first glance seem to be the actual object rather than the artist’s representation. This class will focus on simplifying the process of creating a life-like painting in a 3-day, step by step process. Dustin will start off by demonstrating techniques and students will then work from their own set-ups, with hands-on instruction throughout the day. Students will be asked to bring in items that mean something to them and will be challenged to use these to create a narrative. All levels are welcome as you will be choosing your own items within your drawing ability to create the illusion.
