Beginning Oil Painting

Oil is a fantastic medium to use when first learning to paint. It is much easier to rework than acrylic or watercolor and since it stays wet longer it allows for more time to blend colors and create textural layers. This six-week course will touch on all the basic aspects of painting with oils. Students will learn about the different types of painting materials, including paints, brushes, and canvas. Simple exercises of paint and color mixing will allow students to become comfortable with the materials and create small painting studies from life.
