Introduction to Oil Painting
Name: Introduction to Oil Painting
Date: October 4, 2018
Time: 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM EDT
Local artist Julie Pratt will teach the foundation skills of painting with oil, with a focus on four main skills: shading, glazing, color mixing, and application of paint. “Oil paint is an exciting medium, but it can be intimidating for those who have never been taught how to use it. Once you understand and become familiar with its unique properties you begin to see how versatile and truly amazing this medium really is,” says Pratt. Pratt will introduce a series of exercises to create a better understanding of the oil paint medium, and the foundation skills that will help students to progress further in their painting. This class is excellent for those who have worked in oil paint and desire a fuller understanding of the medium or for those who have never used it before. All skill levels are welcome, and materials will be provided, though artists are welcome to bring their own materials if they prefer. The class is limited to 12 participants.
