This 8-session course will cover all of the fundamentals of oil painting that you will need to get started in this incredibly versatile medium. If you have ever wanted to take a workshop from an artist, or just start an oil painting yourself, but are intimidated by the medium, this will be a great course for you. Despite the mastery that can be achieved with oil paint, the fundamentals are more accessible than you may think. In this course I will cover the materials in detail, including how to care for them, how to use them, and how to dispose of them safely. I will go over what is optional, what is necessary, and why. I will go over common mistakes beginners make and how to trouble shoot these aspects. And at the end of this course you will have all the tools needed to start and finish a painting, as well as the confidence to take courses and workshops from other artists you admire who work in oil paint!
NO CLASS on Oct. 5th & Nov. 2nd
