Intro to Oil Painting: Six Sessions
November 20 @ 6:00 am - 9:00 pm
This studio course is designed for a wide range of skill levels interested in developing their oil painting practice. Painting will be explored as a means of expressing our contemporary world via realism, metaphor and abstraction. We will examine contemporary issues in painting through an investigation of techniques of old masters, new methods and how they interact with each other. Painting offers the chance to investigate concepts through application; mark making and the surface of quality of paint with an emphasis on developing ideas and refining techniques. Students will also develop ideas using source material such as sketches, props, and memory. Color theory, composition, surface preparation, and a variety of oil painting techniques will be explored through this course. Each session will include 15-30 minutes of instruction for beginners, a 15-30 minute demo catered towards more advanced students, followed by about 2 hours of guided studio time with 1-on-1 support. Short critiques will take place throughout the course. Additional open studio hours will be available to students.
This course runs Monday evenings for six sessions and will offer up to two makeup course dates if needed for any missed class days.
Minimum 8/Maximum 12 Students
