Painting the Still Life with Todd Casey

April 22, 2022 @ 9:00 am - April 24, 2022 @ 4:00 pm


Learn the fundamentals of still life painting in the inspiring studios of the Lyme Academy. Guided instruction will address composition, drawing, light, color theory, form, depth, edges, and how to introduce narrative elements into a painting based on the direct and focused observation of 2-4 selected objects. Workshop demonstrations will include the “direct method” approach, starting with a charcoal under-drawing and building up a painting in stages. Morning demonstrations and lectures will be followed by individual instruction, ensuring that each student’s still life painting is developed and completed.

Todd M. Casey was born and raised in Lowell, Massachusetts. He earned his BFA in Communication Design from Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, Massachusetts. Casey’s work is both realistic and progressive, carefully observed and inherently narrative. Every painting has a tale to tell, brewed from a deep well of introspective thought. Recently Casey has made the transition to author and teacher. He published his first art book, The Art of Still Life, in 2020 with Monacelli Press. His second book, The Oil Painters’ Color Handbook, will be available in August 2022.

Dates: Friday, April 22 – Sunday, April 24, 9am-4pm.
