IN-PERSON WORKSHOP / Saturday / Oct 14 / 1:00-5:00pm

Intro to Oils WORKSHOP

Students will gain an introduction to oil paints in this one day workshop with local artist and arts educator, Emily Sullivan. We will learn about paint mediums, setting up a palette, basic color mixing, and composition with a focus on oils. Students will first complete a series of quick color-mixing exercises to learn about value, temperature, and intensity. After this, students will have the opportunity to work from a still life to learn how to complete an oil painting from start to finish. Students will leave with the skills and resources to continue oil painting!
