The allure of oil painting calls to the senses from the studio, awakened by the visual appeal of the richness of luminous color and texture. With oil paint there is a magical quality of a historical tradition that is both ancient and readily accessible. This is an oil painting course designed to introduce the student to the dynamic oil painting medium. You will paint in each class and learn what makes oil paint unique; pigment color mixing, how to control the behavior of the oil body, and why it dries slowly. You will learn the classic methods of layering and the meaning of Alla Prima. From traditional to contemporary styles, oil painting accommodates a vast range of application techniques which you will discover and take with you from this course. Please note that this class will teach solvent free, non-toxic methods of working with oil paint and studio hygiene.

Want to learn all about what is needed to start oil painting? There will be a separate fast-paced two-hour workshop, Oil Painting Curious – The Basics, offered on September 8 from 5:30-7:30pm for those who are curious or totally new to oil paint. The workshop will prepare you for – or help you decide whether you’d like to sign up for – Introduction to Oil Painting: Unleashing Colors and Creativity.
