Introduction to Oil Painting – 6 week Monday Evening course
October 29 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm| £175
Introduction to oil painting on six Monday Evenings
by Colour Factory artist Michael Weller
My oil-painting class is based in the Colour Factory garden studio, tucked away behind the River Park Leisure Centre. Three evenings of still life, followed by three evenings of portrait-painting, from life, not photographs. Classes are limited to eight, to enable time for individual teaching. Tea and coffee is provided. I’ll supply a list of basic art materials needed before the class begins. Classes are on Mondays, 6 till 9pm.
It helps to have some experience of drawing. The aim isn’t so much coming away from the class with a finished painting. It’s more like a series of colour studies in oil, and people come away with a few approaches to managing an oil painting. I encourage slowing down, working big to small, finding the big colour shapes. It’s a slightly abstract way in to the painting. It’s how I work.
The cost for six evening classes is £175.
