Beginning Oil Painting


DATES: Thursdays evenings: February 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th

TIME: 6-9pm

Instructor: Shannon Cannings, MFA Syracuse University

Location: 5th and J Gallery at 1106 5th Street

Class Description: Oil painting does not have to be intimidating! In this class, students will learn about oil paint, mediums and solvents, color mixing and layering. They will learn how to grid up and paint from their own photo, taking an image from a light drawing on the canvas to a finished oil painting in 4 sessions. These tools and techniques are useful both to those with no previous experience as well as those looking to try some new painting tricks.

Additional Information: After you sign up for the class the instructor will email you a supply list. All materials will be available locally or online. CASP will provide table-top easels, 16″x20″ canvases and solvents/containers.
