How to Not be Afraid of Painting in Oils (ages 17 to adult)

March 5 - March 6

$150.00

Saturday, March 5 & Sunday, March 6

10:00 am – 4:00 pm

 

Instructor: Laureen Marchand
Whether it’s from ideas about safety or about tradition, many artists are uncertain about using oil paints. This workshop will demonstrate not only that artists’ oils can be non-toxic and safe, but also that they are meant to be used in as many ways as there are artists. Students will learn colour mixing, varying application techniques, how to adapt oils to their own subjects and ways of working, and how generous oil painting can be. Students will also learn safe studio practice and how to use oils without solvents or smell.

During this two-day workshop, students will have the opportunity to develop their compositional and planning skills, find different ways of mark-making that are personal and relevant, use a range of tools, and make and build on mistakes and accidents.

There will be an hour-long lunch break each day.

*All materials for art classes are included in your class fee.
