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.

Note: In-person programs are not recorded.
