Oil paints are rich, vivid and vibrant. There are certain techniques that artists use in order to be successful with this beautiful medium. Whether you have never painted with oil paint or are just dusting off your brushes, this is the class for you! Our expert instructor, Chris Taulbee will guide you with step-by-step instruction on how to use oil paint materials. With your first painting, you will learn how to work with a three-color palette, how to mix color, how to show lights and darks to create dimension, and how to shade seamlessly from one shade to the next. In the last two weeks of the session, we will either create another guided still-life painting or you may stretch your wings and do a painting of your own choice. Our instructor will go from easel to easel, offering assistance and giving advice.
Session & Class Structure: Classes will be held once a week, for six- week sessions. This program is ideal for beginners, as well as advanced students. Some drawing abilities are helpful. Class members are asked to bring their own paint supplies.
