If you've always wanted to learn to oil paint,
here's your opportunity!
In the privacy of my studio in Wheat Ridge, CO, I'll help you learn the basic "how to's" of oil painting! Together we'll dig in right away with basic studies, breaking up scenes into simple shapes and values. You'll learn to mix color, and experience a variety of brushes and other "mark making" materials as well as explore the options in surfaces, mediums, resources and more!
Values, composition, temperature and perspective are the 4 essential areas successful artists master effectively. You will learn how to "read" these essentials and begin to incorporate them into your own work.
These sessions are designed for those who are new to oil painting, have likely never tried it before. You will not go home with "finished" paintings, it's important to be clear. Depending on your "why" for wanting to learn, either as a hobbyist or a more serious path, I'm glad to help you where you are now. Students are welcome to sign up for one class, discounts are available for multi-class registration. I do recommend multi-class sign up, here's why: a) Reserve your favorite time slot b) Oil painting is not a "craft." It's a practice, something I've been working on for 15 years. Some paintings just don't work out, some do. This is simply part of the process and you can learn from every painting, good or not so good.
All materials will be provided.
Your time in the studio will be the perfect place to ask the "dumb" questions. It's a no judgement zone! :)
