Learn the basics of direct oil painting in a fun encouraging atmosphere. If you’ve been curious about oil painting but don’t know where to start – this class will get you painting! In this 4 week course, we’ll learn how to prepare a surface for painting, basic principles for direct painting with oils, materials safety, how to start a painting working from both life and photo reference, steps for creating a painting from beginning to end, and skills for mixing colors. The direct method of painting involves working wet on wet – layering wet paint into wet paint. When completed in one session, it’s referred to as “alla prima.” We’ll observe closely and work quickly with the goal of completing a small painting each class.  Whether you’ve painted before or are trying it for the first time, this class will give you a taste of how fun and enthralling oil painting can be.
