Have you ever thought about learning to paint in oils? Or did you paint in oils a while ago and you want to get back to it? This is the class for you! This class combines beginners with experienced artists. Beginners will learn the fundamentals of oil painting while more experienced artists will “brush up” their skills learning more advanced techniques. Beginners and first time painters to our class work on structured projects tailored to students’ experience. Everyone paints at their own level and at their own speed. The focus is on individual style. On the first night of class new students should bring pen and paper.  We will go over materials.  If you have any old oil painting supplies please bring them regardless of their age. Our ongoing students continue working on their paintings.  Many of our regular students have shown their painting in local exhibitions winning top prizes in juried shows.
