This class is the perfect introduction to painting. Maybe you are only thinking about trying out oil painting but you are not ready to invest in materials, this is a workshop where you have the option to try it out before purchasing anything. You have the option to just pay a material fee and I will provide the materials*. Or maybe you have a set collecting dust somewhere because you’re just not sure where to begin. Or maybe you work in another medium but have always wanted to try oils. Whatever the case, we will spend the next 6 weeks learning how to use materials while painting simple objects from observation.  No pressure, it will be fun and you will have a better idea if it is a path you want to pursue further after taking this class. The follow up class will be called “Beyond Beginners” where you will have the opportunity to continue in a structured approach learning the building blocks of painting.
