October Workshops

  • Friday, October 13, 12:30 - 3:30 pm
  • Friday, October 27, 12:30 - 3:30 pm


PAINTING TIP:  Imagine backdrops! Using differing ground color and effects! Learn how to create backdrops and effects for composition. An expressive underpainting can become a backdrop of ground color, showing through in places and unifying the painting. Learn how to layer the paint, through a process, by blocking in shapes and value patterns, providing a base for additional layers.

Water-Mixable Oil Painting Workshops


Oil Impressions! Imagine backdrops! Expressionistic!
Gallery of paintings!


Enjoy becoming a creative, expressive, productive and successful artist while shaping your own painting style!  In these workshops, students will develop skills and experiment with color harmonies in shapes and lines and color harmonies in rhythms and movement.  Water-mixable oils create a “rich & buttery” painting medium and oil painters can achieve a variety of painting effects, with boundless brush selections and techniques.  Students have the option of choosing what they would like to paint.  Returning students may also continue to develop the autonomy to paint with individualism and originality. Basic drawing and painting experience is recommended.
