Explore the fundamentals of oil painting in a fun and casual setting with artist Glenda Blake. Together we’ll paint from a still life in the classroom, learning as we go about composition, underpainting, light, shadow, and color. If you’ve always wanted to paint in oils, now is the time! If you have painting experience already, come to learn new techniques and gain confidence – there’s always something more to learn! Please bring a portable floor easel if you have one (available on loan from the instructor, if you don’t) and a work apron, and/or wear older clothing to paint in.

$15 supply fee due a week before the start of class. Class size is limited to 10 students.

This class will run Monday afternoons from 1-4 PM in the upstairs dining room March 5-April 9(no class on April 2). Glenda Blake does not admit anyone who hasn’t attended the first class.
