Oil Painting Explorations: Workshop 1

January 12 @ 12:00 pm UTC+0 at The Downtowner Art Gallery $120

This workshop focuses on the practice of oil painting. Students learn about the material properties of
oil paint. The group will see and emulate good painting practices through demonstration followed by
student application. You will make paintings that allow you to play with paint application, color mixing,
and value control. We will produce a small painting to take home during each of the 2 sessions. Canvas
panels will be provided. Students will also be provided with a set of colors and brushes that they will be
responsible for the care and use of. Nobody takes care of your things like you do!

Class meets January 12 and 19, 2020, 12:00-3:00.
Class fee is $120 + $40 supply fee.
The class fee is paid during advanced registration, which closes January 10, at 12:01 am.  The supply fee is paid at the start of class.
