Online Study Group with Sadie Valeri

Join a private study group with Sadie on Facebook. Sadie posts video lessons and handouts for step by step help with still life drawing and painting. Students can upload their exercises and in-progress artworks for help and critique. 

Sadie teaches the painting technique she uses for her own still lifes: The layered, Indirect method of oil painting developed by the Dutch Masters of 17th century. This method of applying many thin layers of oil paint on a smooth wood panel gives the artist incredible control for achieving effects of stunning realism.
