Oil Painting: an Introduction

with Nicole DeSimone


Class is full
This course is for students who wish to try oil painting for the first time or those who would like guided instruction on the techniques and practices for using the medium. We will break oil painting down to a step-by-step process. Learn about the materials used in oil painting, how to mix colors, and apply and handle paint. We will work on various exercises to help you practice working with the materials and begin to work on complete paintings. There will be no class on February 22 or March 1.

All supplies will be provided throughout the course, including a set of 12 color oil paints that students can keep. Materials fee of $45 is included in the cost of the class already. Students are only asked to bring in cotton rags (old t shirts), or paper towels and a few small to medium sized jars with sealing lids if they have them. Nicole DeSimone is a painter working primarily in Oils, painting the figure, landscape and still life.
