Beginning Oil Painting
8-Session Evening Course
Thursday, April 18 to June 6, 2019 – 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
By Shahin Shikhaliyev
Lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on experimentation introduce the medium of oils. Working from museum masterpieces, still-life arrangements or your own favorite photos, explore basic painting techniques, including color-mixing, scumbling, and glazing to gain the technical background and experience you need to get started as a painter.
Experience in drawing is helpful but not necessary. Guidelines for handling toxic chemicals and their waste products are stressed.
