Take the intimidation factor out of oil painting! Whether you’re a first-time
painter or an experienced artist looking to try something new, this workshop
has something for you! Learn all about this luscious, versatile medium, and
energize your art making practice with a focus on the fundamentals of
loose, realistic painting.
We’ll explore topics including basic materials, color, value, and mixing, as
well as the all-important question: “What should I paint?” Beginning with
value – the dark and light relationships between objects – we’ll move on to
color theory, and use a primary color palette to mix up a full spectrum from
three tubes of paint. Working with a limited palette has many benefits, and
can be applied to portrait, still life, landscape – or any kind of painting you
want to do!
Begin your oil painting journey, or give your skills a tune up!
This workshop is still life based. Students of all levels welcome, ages 15
