Introduction to Oil Painting 6-Week Course

Class Description

A course you’ve been waiting for is finally here! If you have never tried oils before, you must – it’s divine! From the Old Masters to contemporary painters, oils have been a long-time favorite for many artists: its longevity, versatility (blending, impasto, glazing, etc.), and nobility appeals to all. Find out why artists throughout the centuries have fallen in love with oils, as you’ll get to experience the bliss in this course.

This course will cover the materials, color mixing, oil-painting techniques, and safety tips when painting with oils: knowing these rules will help you enjoy this classic medium for years to come. We’ll also cover the specifics of storing your oil paintings. In 6 lessons, you will create several preparatory studies and one completed painting.

This course is designed to equip you with the techniques and tips of the classic oils, and provide you with the foundational skills of oil painting – so you can start creating an original painting in oils and begin your artistic journey painting many more!

By the end of the course, you’ll have painted your very own, original oil painting.

Who this course is for:

  • The beginning artist who has never painted in oil before.
  • The artist who has tried oil painting but feels intimidated by the medium.
  • The artist who wants to paint in oils but feels frustrated by their current
    efforts and would like to achieve a greater level of success.
  • The artist who wants to take their skills beyond following along in a craft-
    making class or at the paint and sip social gathering
