Are you interested in learning how to paint with oil but not sure where to start? In this course, students learn the fundamental techniques of oil painting. Did you know that oil paints are just pigment suspended in drying oil? It is one of the most versatile paint mediums; oil paint is able to achieve a range of effects from thin glazing to heavy impasto. Imagine setting up your painting easel in our historic Bunk House Studio as you learn about how to set up your palate, mix paint, care for your brushes and store your work. The foundations of oil painting will be covered; from seeing shapes, form, color, tone, and light. Each session will begin with a demonstration followed by time to practice the new technique. At the end of the course students can expect to have a sample of test paintings exhibiting a range of methods and techniques. After this course check out Paint 202 to delve further into the next level of oil painting practice.
