Oil Painting
Nov 22 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Class Description: Oil paints are lustrous and sumptuous, the gold standard of mediums throughout the history of art. They can also be intimidating, with their many pigments, oils, varnishes, turpentine and brushes. This beginner’s class breaks down the fundamentals of oil painting into manageable blocks. This is an exciting class for me to teach; there is a tremendous learning curve. We will cover: composition, paint mixing, drawing with paint, values (light/dark), and color theory. No previous art classes are required. Receive individual attention at every step along the way. Working from still lifes or from your own individual photos, students will create accomplished and beautiful canvases to treasure for years ahead. Materials are not included; a materials list will be provided. – See more at: http://jacksonvillecenter.org/classes/11-november/oil-painting-twd110114/#sthash.ZsB4r1No.dpuf
