Oil Painting Foundations Workshop (Ages 16+)

Oil Painting Foundations Workshop (Ages 16+)

In this workshop beginning to intermediate artists alike will learn about colors and the proper way to mix them, come to understand the concept of value vs. color, how to distinguish and recreate a hue, and how to blend colors together on the canvas.  By working with these simple concepts students will begin to build the skills needed for dealing with more complex subjects such as landscape paintings.
