Beginning Oil Painting
8-Session Evening Course
Thursday, April 16 to June 4, 2020 – 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
By Shahin Talishkhan
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. A supply list may be downloaded from this page no later than 2 weeks prior to the first session. Guidelines for handling toxic chemicals and their waste products are stressed.
