Learn the fundamentals of oil painting at The Art Center!

For new students, you will be introduced to oil painting materials while gaining hands-on experience mixing colors, painting on canvas, and proper clean up. Sarah will guide you in a traditional, layered approach to oil painting. Working from the still life, you will study value and color relationships and be challenged to “paint what you see, not what you know”. 

For returning students, welcome back! Working from the still life, you will continue to build on your technical skills while exploring personal style and interests. You will render form and space through careful value study and color mixing. We will also address compositional strategies that can elevate a painting.

All painters will work alongside each other at their own pace, and be given encouragement and constructive feedback in individual and group critiques. A small class size of 4–6 students allows for personalized instruction.

This class is for beginner and intermediate painters who are new to oil painting. Drawing experience is helpful but is not required. 

All class materials are provided by The Art Center.

Welcome back! In this follow-up session to Introduction to Oil Painting and the Watercolor Workshop, we will build on our technical skills while exploring personal style and interests through independent projects. Sarah will provide a weekly still life arrangement with seasonal items from her garden, or you may choose to work from your own materials or photography. We will continue to render form and space through value study and color mixing, plus explore mark making as a vehicle to create emotion, movement and textural interest. We will also address compositional strategies that can elevate a painting. You will work alongside each other at your own pace, and be given encouragement and constructive feedback in group critiques. Prior to the first class, Sarah will be in touch to discuss your individual goals for the session and will guide
you accordingly. You can expect to walk away from this class further inspired and with work that you are proud of — paintings reflective of you.

All class materials are provided by The Art Center.
