***Please note if signing up for a drop in class, we do not guarantee that you will finish your project in one sitting. Single one-off classes are offered as fun taster sessions & are not meant to substitute for a full study in your chosen subject. As with all art it is not about the end result, but more about the journey, so if you don’t finish your project in one session, you can always book another session with us or finish your project at home! For a more comprehensive learning experience in your choice of media, we highly recommend signing up for a full Class PKG.

CLASS SYLLABUS: In this class, get an introduction to the academic painting practices in oil painting, get the tools you need to use this media and approach this process with confidence. In the first few weeks of our course, we will explore color, shape, tone, value & texture & work on practical exercises & projects to employ these elements into creating dynamic compositions. We will first sketch our subject before moving on to painting, demo dry-bushwork, color mixing and application. The process of Oil Painting technique encourages you to be aware of every single brushstroke and the application of paint, so control is needed in handling this media to get results. Learn how to handle this medium & how to choose the right color palette to evoke emotion, mood and tone as you approach your subject matter with confidence. Employ light, shadow, volume, depth, & implement special effects. Techniques such as the All Prima method will be explored, along with discussion on master oil painters for inspiration. During the course you will work from personal subject matter, still life, landscape, portraits, photos and study the style of realism vs. abstraction. You will complete several paintings over the length of this course, depending on how fast you work & how large your canvas & subject, but we encourage each student to work at their own pace. Some drawing experience is helpful for this course but not essential. BYOB if you like!

MATERIALS: Painting supplies are included, but NOT canvas, please bring a canvas with you to your first class. We suggest a medium size canvas to start. You may need additional canvas throughout the duration of your course, depending on the project & how small/large you work.
