Oil Painting for Beginners
An introduction to the basic principles of painting through observational still life exercises. The class will explore color, form, light, shadow and composition. The instructor will have painting technique demonstrations where students will learn how to mix colors, apply paint, and work in layers to create a luminous oil painting. Students are free to work from the class’ still life or they can bring their own photographs. Intermediate and advanced students are also welcome to create individual projects with the instructor as they continue to develop their work.
