This is a discovery class for beginning students to learn how to start working in oils. Expect to learn what supplies are needed, the difference between paints, painting surfaces, and mediums. This will be an information packed 10 weeks of study to help students think like an artist. Every week we will paint to learn how to key a painting, color theory, design and composition, brushwork and edges, creating focal points, and more.  Once we have that initial experience we can dive into how we begin our own paintings whether it is portraiture, landscape, still life, animals, and/or interior scenes.

Students have the option to learn from master copies or photographs that will complement the lessons learned.
