Oil painting is a traditional paint medium that is fun to learn and explore. Learn how to paint with oil paints, add oil paint to your existing palette or enhance the skills you already have. Learn to paint from a still life or your favorite photo reference. Photo references or references must not be a copyrighted material and it is encouraged to be created by the artist. Instruction on taking your own photographs for references can be provided, if desired. The goal is to learn foundations, paint independently and create original art. Bring all of your supplies and your subject of choice (a photo, photos, drawing, design or object, etc.) to the first class. Some previous art instruction is recommended but not required.
