Visit Newport Beach

Newport Coast/Crystal Cove



The first of two workshops led by renowned local artist, Jo Situ Allen, in collaboration with Laguna Art Museum, all budding artists will enjoy a special family experience while creating a personal Still Life. Italian still life painting dates from the early 1400’s and Italian artists were widely respected for capturing a passing moment called Natura In Posa (nature suspended). In this workshop, guest artists will observe an abundance of fruits and vegetables from the Pelican Hill kitchens as well as local and native florals and Italian ceramics. Working with a variety of materials including watercolor, graphites, colored pencils, pastels, and ink, every participant will make their very own multi-media Still Life work of art.

Fun, easy-to-follow instructions make this a must-attend summer arts event. No previous experience is required. Guests will enjoy light refreshments and the opportunity to take photos with the artist at the end of the workshop.
