About the Event

This is an introductory oil painting class for beginner to intermediate painters who want to paint in oil but don't want the hazards of working with dangerous mediums. This course is 12 hours in total, giving the student ample time to complete projects each week while learning in a group environment online. In this course we will go over materials, tools, color mixing, color theory, Contemporary Impressionism and going from concept to canvas. This is a 4 week series taking beginning artists through an intensive study that prepares them for painting with oils. It is also a great class for intermediate artists who want to go back to the basics so they can recount the proper principles and move their work to the next level.

For this class, you will need to purchase your own supplies and join us online for a group lesson every week that takes you step by step through the initial process of starting a new work of art.
