2-Day Oil Painting Workshop January 21 & 22, 2022 10 AM - 5 PM ET

1-Day Oil Painting Mini Workshop (8”x8” canvas) February 16, 2022 10 AM - 5 PM

Painting with oils is a time-honored method to translate an image onto canvas using oil paint and brush. In this class we will work from photo reference to begin the learning road of oil painting.

Students will be taught how to choose a composition, transfer it to the canvas and then begin the process of laying in color, values, and shapes. The class will begin with a demonstration and instruction followed by individual attention. We will discuss composition, color mixing, edges, brushwork, and values.

We will focus on light and shadow while working with a limited palette, paying attention to brushwork and edges as we build up the design. Paintings preferably are done on a 16”x20” gallery wrap canvas and students will be given a choice of images from which to work. Attention to detail is important and even more critical is the use of light and shadow to form the shapes while lying in color to complete the design.

    Homework:

    In order to be ready to finish the bracelet on January 26, the student will need to complete the body portion of the bracelet

    before class.


    The instructor is available to provide one-on-one or group help as needed.


    January 26:

    Students will finish the ends of the bracelet and attach the clasp. The “wave” stitching will be applied to the bracelet to finish it. Students will pay the instructor a materials fee in the amount of $20 for a kit that includes beads, a bead mat, measure tape, Nanofil line for weaving bracelets, a beading needle, and a clasp. 


    The instructor will provide tools for use in class, or the student may bring their personal tools if they wish (please have an identity mark on all personal tools). The following tools will be used: chain-nose pliers and flush cutters.
