If you have never worked in oils but always wanted to, don’t be scared. Waid will show you how enjoyable and rewarding this medium can be. This will be a fun introductory class discovering the beauty of working in oil paint.  We will cover materials, including different mediums, brushes, pigments and how to prepare the painting surface with a primer; working on different supports such as canvas, wood panel or prepped paper. Students will try out different techniques working in traditional and alla prima methods, while painting from a limited to a full color palette. We will use reference to work from, such as master copies of landscape, still life and portrait, as our subject matter. This class will be informative, without being intimidating and will give you choices that allow you to decide how you want to work with the medium of oil painting.

Please sign up early; class size is limited.
