Oil Painting Course

1:40pm–3:40pm Thursdays, January 4–March 29
(monthly registration)

Instructor: Linda Harold

Join Instructor Linda Harold and learn the basic “how-to’s” of oil painting. You’ll learn about the different types of brushes and how to use them, experimenting with various brush strokes and the vocabulary of color.

Students will learn how and why to use a color wheel, how to mix paint and proper cleaning and caring for your brushes. There will be discussions about light, lines, perspective and “keeping it simple.” You’ll practice brush strokes and blending techniques as well as learn ways to fix mistakes that may happen.

If you have painted before, join us for a refresher and quickly move on to working at your own pace. Each of you will add to the flavor and depth of this course with your own questions and experiences.
