(See below for student projects from this course)
This course is designed for both students with no oil painting experience and those with experience. Level one students will be encouraged to participate in step-by-step projects (such as a still life and landscape painting), whilst more advanced students can work on their own chosen subjects. Different approaches to oil painting will be explored throughout the course -- such as alla prima techniques, classical painting, impressionism and abstract form. Elements of design, composition and colour theory will be discussed during the painting process. An overview on oil painting supplies, materials and techniques will provide students with a solid foundation to build on.
