Painting can be challenging, yet fun! Beginning with still life projects, students will learn the basic manipulation of oil paint. Mixing color, composition, design, painting different textures, and drawing will all be demonstrated. Halfway through the course students will move on to the portrait. Working directly from a life model will capture a likeness, mixing flesh tones and gaining confidence in their work. Students will receive critiques and will be shown the process of building a painting in layers, glazing and creating textures. All work can be used as portfolio pieces for students wishing to attend Art College. The school will provide all materials.
