Event Description

Learn the fundamentals of oil painting. From materials to techniques to colour mixing, and painting from reference images, this 2-day intensive workshop will equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to dive deeper into this boundless medium.

Who is this course for?
While this class is well suited for beginners, all skill levels are welcome and can benefit from brushing up on the fundamentals of oil painting. The course includes many demos and one-on-one instruction and feedback. Regardless of your level, you will learn something new to enhance your painting practice!

Day 1: Seeing and Painting Values
The first part of the course focuses on basic techniques to start a painting, tonal values, working from a reference photo, blocking in shapes, and applying paint to create depth and volume. It includes warm-up exercises, demos, and a longer grayscale painting practice. We will all work from the same reference image which will be chosen together as a group on the day of the workshop.

Day 2: Painting With Colours
On the second day, we bring in a limited palette to practice mixing and matching colours. We cover basic colour theory, colour keys, and a range of techniques to build form with values, chromas, and hues. Again, the day is structured around warm-up exercises, demos, and a longer practice from a reference image.

This workshop is limited to 10 people and is offered on a sliding scale basis from $200 to $450. To register, email Anne-Sophie at [email protected]
