Oil Painting for Beginners / Intermediate

Basic Information

Oil painting is a very forgiving medium, therefore ideal for everyone, even those who have never painted before.
The first class will be a brief introduction and then we shall begin with a simple "still life" provided by the instructor. All artists paint at different speeds so there will be no pressure to finish quickly. 

Following paintings are for the students to supply the subject, which will be discussed during the course.
It is a magical experience, that a stark white canvas can be created into anything you want it to be.
