Class Description

Learn the fundamentals of oil painting in a supportive environment. Oils are a vibrant and versatile medium with a rich history that dates back to the 12th century. You will learn how to mix colors, set up a palette, and paint what you see. We will also explore the properties of oil paint, learn how to manipulate and apply it, and use it to create the illusion of space and depth. We will begin by working with traditional techniques, then develop skills that will serve as building blocks for your own artistic explorations. Prerequisite: Beginning Drawing is recommended
