Still Life by Joseph Gyurcsak

“Capturing The Essence of Your Subject” Workshop
March 18, 2018

We had a packed house for the  Still Life Workshop with Joseph Gyurcsak.  Some photos are included below of artists working on techniques taught in the workshop.  Joseph did demos on how to establish successful starts and finishes. There were also personal and group discussions along with critiques during the workshop.

Joseph also spoke at one of our Programs earlier this year.  You can read more about him on our blog post and see more of his work on his personal website.
