How many times have you visited the painting galleries in a museum and wished you could do that? The luminosity of oil paints has intrigued us all. This class is an introduction to the art of oil painting especially for people who have never painted in oils, or who have been away for a while and would like to get back to the basics. We will explore color and organization of the palette, mixing of paints, brushstroke and application of paint onto canvas. Learning to look at your subject, light source and setting up composition will be explored as we create meaningful artistic expressions. A variety of subject matter, including still life, landscape, and portraiture will be part of our focus. References will be made to the masters, and students will be encouraged to use personal inspiration in their work. Demonstrations, individualized attention and group critique will be instrumental in developing our practice. All levels. [Materials list in detailed description]
