Highlights

Designed for students with little or no experience in oil painting, this course introduces the specific materials and processes of the medium. Demonstrations on stretching a canvas, laying out a palette, various paint application techniques, and color mixing provide the fundamentals of oil painting and a strong foundation for creating portfolio-quality work. 

In addition, color theory, composition, structure, proportion, and perspective are explored through observational painting, as well as exercises that encourage students to confidently experiment to find their own direction and style. Please note that a nude model may be used in this course. 

Basic drawing and water-based painting experience required. 

Important: 

  • Figure Drawing, Figure Painting, Painting, and Drawing courses may use nude models hired by the School. Other classes may use them to a lesser degree.
  • After enrolling for any children's classes, CourseHorse will reach out to you with additional paperwork which must be completed in order to stay enrolled in the classes. If you'd like to get a head start on the children's class consent form which is mandatory or the allergy forms which are optional, you can access them HERE
