Laura Robb

Still Life

Oil Painting Workshop


Friday, Saturday & Sunday,

March 15, 16 & 17, 2013

9:00 am – 4:00 pm




This workshop is for students who are serious about advancing their skills of observation and want to understand how to use their palette to its full advantage.  Laura will explain and show through demonstration studies how certain effects of light and depth can be achieved.  She will also try to help identify materials or procedures a student may be using that are getting in the way of progress.  She will discuss composition, technique, principles of light and shade and a range of other painting related topics.  Almost all of the lessons will apply to any medium or subject matter but the focus will be specific to still life in oil.  Demonstrations will be done with the intent of illustrating how to handle specific problems, rather than producing an entire finished painting.  Students will also be encouraged to adopt a similar attitude with an emphasis on learning and study.

Laura Robb grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma and entered art school at the age of sixteen.  In 1974, Laura moved to New York City to study with Michael Aviano.  Since moving to Taos, New Mexico in 1986, Laura's art travels have taken her to France, Spain, Guatemala and across the United States.  She has exhibited in numerous group and one person shows and received many adwards.  Her paintings portray a variety of subject matter.  She continues to create still-life, figurative and landscape works from her studio near Taos, New Mexico.
