This class is a follow-up to Oil Painting I , although it is not a requirement to have taken the previous class. Some amount of oil painting experience is required. Students will continue to explore the building blocks of solid painting- drawing, values, and edges. We will be painting from a cast, a still life, and finally, we will be working on a portrait from life. Mia will demonstrate at the beginning of each class, and each student will have personalized, in-class critiques of their work throughout the workshop. Great for new painters, or the seasoned artist looking to freshen up their skills!
Class limited to 12 students.

Mia has studied at the Rhode Island School of Design, and has studied and taught at the Charles H.
