Introduction to Oils | 4 weeks

Introduction to Oils | 4 weeks

Anyone can paint if they are given the right instructions." - Marcel Desbiens, Master Artist and Principal Tutor

About this workshop

This course is designed for busy people who would like to try oils over 4 weeks instead of our 8 week course.

If you have never picked up a paintbrush before, this course will give you the technical skills and knowledge to help fast track your painting process and produce stunning works of art of your own. All in a friendly and supportive environment.

You will receive a set of brushes, 5 oil colours and surfaces to paint on, valued at $90 for you to keep. All you need to do is turn up with enthusiasm!

What will I learn?

• how to set up your work station to minimise mess and maximise your painting time
• understand basic principal of colour mixing and paint consistency
• learn how to control tone to create the optical illusion of reality
• how to choose the right brushes and develop effective brush techniques
• how to clean and care for your brushes

Class sizes are kept to a maximum of 10 students so that you will receive personal attention.

You will receive step-by-step demonstrations, and then it’s your turn for “hands – on” painting exercises. Each exercise builds on the previous one so that your skills and confidence will grow a little more.

You will achieve a three dimensional appearance of the apple at the end of the workshop.
