10 am-5 pm
in-person @ Townsend Atelier
Instructor: David Cheifetz
We are thrilled to have visiting artist and instructor, David Cheifetz back at Townsend Atelier. In this four-day workshop, David will guide students on still life composition, brush painting, and knife painting. Any skill level in painting is fine, as David enjoys adjusting his advice and teaching for each person’s level. More advanced students will find it easier to focus on the subtleties of composition. A solid drawing background is highly recommended. A detailed schedule of what will be covered each day is in the link below. Students will have a generous variety of man-made and natural objects from which to choose for their still life and of course, they may also bring their own. There will be a one hour lunch break each day. For those traveling from out of town, if you need accommodation recommendations, please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to help!

He studied at the University of Washington, College of Architecture in Seattle, WA and the Schuler School of Fine Arts, Baltimore, MD. He has taught workshops and has exhibited his artwork throughout the country. He is represented by Gallery 1261 in Denver, CO. David and his family live in Olympia, WA.
