Whether you are a newbie or an experienced painter, this class will cover many aspects of oil painting. From the very basics of how to start – preparing your canvas, designing your compositions and mixing colors – to demonstrations on the color palette and painting applications.
Students are encouraged to work from photos of paintings they admire or artists they would like to learn from as well as their own photographs or designs. With individual help in an environment of creativity and support, we will grow together in creating beautiful works of art.
