For beginning or advanced painters – learn the basics or improve your technique! Learn how to mix colors, apply paint, and work in layers to create a luminous oil painting. A still life will be set up but students can bring their own photographs or even a mirror if they want to do a self-portrait. The photographs should be clear and printed at least 8 x 10.
