"Oil Painting for Beginners"
June 24-27, 2019

Immerse yourself in the world of oil painting, and gain confidence in the medium. Learn how to interpret what you see and transfer that information to canvas to create paintings that are seemingly real and aesthetically sound. Topics will also include basic color theory and compositional strategies. Throughout the week you will complete a series of still life paintings each focused on a different skill and goal, including paint mixing and application, seeing and translating color, solving compositional issues, and more. Demonstrations and discussions will introduce you to each concept, and Trina will provide feedback throughout the process. Though you will be working with the still life, this workshop will benefit any genre or style of painting.
