Oil Painting Class


Next semester starts October 7th

@ Art Escape Studios (Heinesgade 13, 2200 København)

Hosted by Mel Smith

Oil Painting is a 5- or 10-week course dedicated to exploring the basic techniques needed to get you started on your oil painting journey, as we unearth the essence of Still Life, Portraits, and Landscapes!

Best part - no previous experience is required.

During our time together we’ll dive into Color Theory, Brush-technique, and Composition, as well as cover helpful tricks of the trade, such as how to build a painting from a grid drawing and the best way to apply paint. By the end of the semester, you’ll be comfortable working in this versatile medium and we will then venture into your own creative ideas.


We provide an easel, cleaning supplies, and the option to bring your own paint supplies, but if you’re missing anything or wish to upgrade to quality materials, all art supplies needed for this class can be purchased at very affordable prices in our in-studio store.

As students of Art Escape Studios you benefit from a our student card- giving you discounts around Copenhagen with our partnerships and a yearly student exhibition, among other benefits!
