    Learn to see as an artist does and apply that new found knowledge to oil painting! From a still life set up you will learn the basics in drawing in order to do a preliminary sketch in oil directly onto canvas. An explanation of tools and mediums will be discussed with a focus on pallet set up. Guided by your instructor you'll quickly learn about shape and form while gaining an understanding of how to see value to complete a tonal under-painting. You'll learn about color mixing and matching as you progress to a full color painting. The concepts and principals taught in Introduction to Oil Painting will help develop the skills to further your path in becoming a better artist.

    This studio style class will offer individual guidance and instruction as students work from photographs, iPads or a Still Life setup using their own mediums and tools (oils, acrylics, pastels... brushes, palette knives, charcoal...). Various aspects of painting and color theory are covered and discussed depending on one’s level or needs. It is an opportunity to develop your skills or pick up where you left off years ago. In a setting like this students learn from each other while being continuously inspired! Before class ends everyone participates in a critique of the works that were done that day. This is for students with intermediate painting skills through Advanced.

    You can easily learn the basics while using acrylic paints! Bring your laptops to paint from your own uploaded photographs or images captured off the Internet. Of course, printed images are suitable for use as source material too. Students will explore traditional blocking-in methods while developing subject matter using expressive color, contrast and brushwork. After observing demonstrations, students will start off creating studies to learn basic techniques in color mixing and applications for building volume and space. The instructor will offer critiques that assist in constructive problem solving while exercising our vocabulary for the painting process. Supplies are provided by the student and a list will be sent one week prior to the start of class. Level: Beginner’s thru Intermediate.
