Oil Painting Class- Still Life, Portraits and Landscape

This is a 7 week summer course with artist Melanie Smith.

This class for people who would like to learn and develop the basic skills of oil painting.

We focus on color-theory, brush-technique, composition and how to build a painting from grid drawing and sizing up to the application of paint.

No previous experience is needed.

We will start by painting a motive personally choosen from our oil painting catalogue but as you advance, students are encouraged to develop their own ideas and add personal and creative elements to their paintings.

We encourage creativity and individualism.
