Intro to Oil Painting
This course is geared toward painters new to the medium of oil painting but is open to painters of all levels of experience. We will discuss basic color theory alongside the painting philosophy of Charles Hawthorne. Particular emphasis will be placed on color mixing and building space, form and light through color relationships. We will work with a variety of subject matter from still life to landscape, the figure and interior spaces. As students develop their skills and comfort levels with painting they will be encouraged to work more independently and deal with whatever subject matter they engage with most.
