Still Life Painting Workshop

July 29, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Indiana Art Association has an upcoming oil painting workshop being offered by one popular local artist and instructor—Jonelle Summerfield.

The  Still Life Painting workshop will be held on Saturday, July 29th from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm at The Artists Hand Gallery Studio.

According to IAA President/Classes & Programs Chair Faye Kershishnik, this workshop is for serious painters of all skill levels.

Summerfield is an oil painter from Indiana, PA with a degree in Interior Design from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. She credits her mother, Jolene Joyner, as being her first and most influential art teacher. She has studied with numerous other artists whom she also admires.

Summerfield sells her work through online art galleries and has exhibited in Indiana, Latrobe, Ligonier, Pittsburgh, and New York City.

According to Summerfield, her paintings are inspired by her travels, her hobbies, domestic scenes and her cats. The goal of her work is to depict the good things in life to provide relief from a chaotic world.

Kershishnik said the Still Life Painting workshop will cover selecting a still life subject, lighting, composition, materials and the stages of completing the painting. A short walking trip to the nearby farmer’s market for subject matter may be included. Summerfield will also share ideas for final presentation—including varnishing, framing and hanging.

The cost of the Still Life Painting workshop is $60 for IAA members and $75 for non-members. Some materials are included in the price. Registration deadline is July 21st with no refunds after this date.
