Would you like to learn how to paint with Oil, but don’t know where to start? Are you looking to further your oil painting ability? OR Are you looking to explore the grand possibilities of a new medium? Then this is the painting class for you! As a long time professional oil painter and fine art educator, David holds a plentiful amount of experience in producing and teaching various styles of oil painting. Regardless of your amount of experience, desired painting style, or subject preference, this class will assist in your growth as an oil painter and artist.
Against common belief, oil paint is the perfect medium for painting enthusiasts, because it is more forgiving than other mediums. This allows artists to make substantial improvements throughout the painting process without having to start all over.
Ultimately, this class will guide you step by step, starting with the best materials for oil painting. Next, in each lesson to connect class content knowledge to student painting application, historical and contemporary masters will be featured. Along with color mixing, the primary goal of instruction will address the importance of creating a sketch and dynamic compositions in paint. Finally, instruction will cover the various layers of “building up” an oil painting to the end goal.
Cost $30 for members, $38 for non-member per class.
