CourseGraphic Whether you’ve never picked up a paintbrush or are an avid hobbyist intent on expanding your skills, daytime oil painting is for you! Beginners will learn the fundamentals of color mixing, composition, and paint application. By working from still-life arrangements, students will also learn how to create the illusion of light and depth as well as texture while developing their own personal styles. Those with more experience are welcome to concentrate on advanced techniques and work at their own levels. Assistance is available for individual projects.

Please bring the following to the first week of class:
Small metal palette knife
A variety of brushes- 3 are fine, but you should have a large (1"-1.5") flat.
Turpenoid (blue and white can, small size)
