August 7-September 4
Ever wish you had a more solid understanding of basics in oil paint? Never tried them before? This is a great class for anyone looking to build more solidly on what they already know, or have wanted to try oil painting, but have been timid about the ins and outs of it. The class will meet once a week, and each week one painting element will be covered: drawing, values, color temperature, edges and composition. This class is recommended for anyone who is just starting to paint, or for those who wish to go back to the basics and firm up their understanding of oil painting. All levels welcome! We will be doing in-class exercises demonstrating how each of these visual elements work together as a whole in painting. Perfect for beginners but all levels are welcome.
