About this Class:
Based on the model of the Parisian “atelier,” this course offers a space where the student can express creativity and learn the basics oil painting. Through several simple exercises, still lifes, portraits or self-portraits, and a constant practice of painting, we will experience and understand oil techniques, how to control of brightness and light, and sharpen our sense of composition. Students will also be able to work on their own creations and will be encouraged to use the art “tools” and classical techniques to create contemporary paintings.
The class will visit the museum galleries to study the collection for inspiration and to learn about art-making processes.
