In anticipation of the latest season of The Bear returning this month it’s time to paint some dishes inspired by one of my favourite shows. I have watched The Bear twice over and like many am still not over the seven fishes episode! In addition to the powerful storytelling I am obsessed with the lead character Carmen’s sketches of the restaurant's new menu. The series led me down a culinary rabbit hole and I found so many inspiring plates of food just waiting to be painted. I also now want to put herbs on every meal using tweezers. 

In this session we’ll be studying colourful cuisine and observe the wide range of ingredients, composition , and texture. Exploring wet on wet, charging, glazing and pulling techniques we’ll move pigments around to capture the art of food.

Join zoom 15 minutes early (4:45pm) for an informal meet and greet with the instructor and other class participants! Session instructions will begin promptly at 5:05pm PT so that everyone has plenty of time to join!
