About the Instructor(s)

Sarah Sedwick was born in Cleveland, Ohio and has lived in Eugene, Oregon since 2007. In 2001, she earned a BFA from Maryland Institute, College of Art. Her oil paintings celebrate the simple beauty of everyday objects and are most often inspired by color combinations and perceptual effects. All are painted from life.Sarah has been teaching workshops on alla prima still life, portrait and figure painting since 2012, both in Oregon and around the country. Her teaching philosophy focuses on the technical fundamentals of representational painting and aims to make painting fun and accessible for artists of all levels. "If it isn't fun, we won't do it, and doing it is how we improve."
