Participants will work with colored pencils and other materials such as oil pastels, ink, acrylic and watercolour paint, and pens. All materials will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own.
As your guide and facilitator, Liza makes it her mission to clear away the obstacles that may be keeping you from diving freely into the creative world of still life.
The final session of the workshop will hinge on ensuring you are comfortable with these exercises. That way, you’ll have all the tools necessary to create a more refined yet expressive composition.
Liza Isakov is a Montreal-based artist who specializes in paper creations. Her expressive practice draws inspiration from everyday objects and observations—the process of gathering items, imagery, textiles, and loose sketches informs the delicate manner of her work. Isakov’s art has been exhibited around Winnipeg and Montreal, both in solo showcases and group vernissages with fellow students and artists. Isakov is currently in her fifth year at Concordia University, majoring in Studio Arts.
