Oil Painting and Academic Drawing

In by Esther Yardley

 (6th grade – adult)

Learn the step-by-step process of creating oil paintings and drawings that masters have used for centuries. Students will first be taught the basic fundamentals through drawing techniques; learning about values, shading, and how to create the illusion of three-dimensional objects. Students will begin with graphite pencil, advance to charcoal, and then dive into oil painting; learning the basics of color theory, perspective, composition, value, and the variety of brush strokes. Throughout the year, students will learn from Old Master artworks, draw and paint from still lifes, study trees in nature, work on personal projects and more. This is a really informative and fun art class for beginners and advanced artists alike.

Note: All drawing supplies, oil paints, brushes, and brush cleaner will be provided in class. The rest of the art supplies needed must be purchased by the student. A materials list will be handed out on the first class.

Class $350 per 15 week semester. This is a two-semester course.
