Lesson plan for CAVE Bootcamp

Still Life 1001

Our first bootcamp will focus on the creation of a still life. We’ll begin by looking at the fundamentas of storytelling, design and composition. Following on from this, we will look at 2D drawing skills to improve observation and analysis.  This will then be followed up by a study of light and colour, and photography. We will then move on to building our still life in 3d and using all the concepts learnt, model, texture, shade, light and render a 3d still life.
