Introduction to Oil Painting

July 5th, 2014 · Comments Off

july 14- 106

Learn the basics of oil painting in a fun and casual setting with professional artist Glenda Blake.  Together we’ll paint from a still life in the classroom, exploring composition, underpainting, light, shadow, and color mixing.  If you’ve been puzzled by books on painting, this is an ideal time and place to ask questions.  Please bring a work apron and/or wear older clothing to paint in.  Classes will be held Monday afternoons from 1 – 4 PM, July 28 through August 25.  There is a limit of 10 students per class.  A one-time $15 fee is required to cover supplies.  To sign up, stop by the circulation desk at Your Home Public Library, 107 Main Street, Johnson City, NY.
