Dive into oil painting! This class will cover the fundamentals of painting: color, composition, palette and mixing, as well as developing an understanding of properties unique to oil paints. We will learn about greyscale and about using additive and subtractive techniques in painting. Students will complete three paintings over the course of the seven week class. Slide presentations of other painters’ work will supplement the practical studio work we will do in class. This class involves some technical instruction, but students furthering their own artistic inquiry and developing their own voice will be encouraged and applauded.
