Beginning Oil Painting


Make like Monet, Vermeer, and Rothko and give your paintings the captivating color and texture they’ve been craving with oil paint. Working from still-life arrangements –and live models during one of the final classes –you’ll learn about color, composition, and paint application. Soon enough, you’ll master the art of oil and expertly depict and creatively interpret what you observe. Our knowledgeable instructor will provide valuable feedback and guidance in a structured but relaxed environment. No experience is necessary.
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)
Glass jar
Palette paper
Rubber gloves optional
Something to paint on- canvas paper, canvas board, stretched canvas - your choice.
