Painting with Oils

Jean Cook

Oils are a time-honored medium that has lasted for centuries. Students will learn the fundamentals of oil painting and the safe handling of the solvent and paints. The students will be shown the technique of drawing using only a brush on a toned surface. They will be completing a painting alla prima (wet into wet). Gessoed hardboard or canvas panels will be used for painting surfaces.
