Oil Painting Workshop

Landscape Oil Painting (ages 14+)

An introductory course into landscape oil painting that teaches the fundamentals of composition, color, painting technique and materials, lighting, depth of field, and student-led inquiry.  

In this course, we will familiarize ourselves with the materials of oil painting used in capturing the landscape.  We will cover concepts such as breaking down the complexities of nature into simplified masses.  Capturing desired lighting effects to add mood and atmosphere to your painting.  Understanding depth and which techniques render this effectively.  Understanding historical uses and contexts of landscape painting.  Use of color to bring paintings to life.  The different ways to compose your painting and the effects those decisions have on your painting. 

This class is for any skill level, but some fundamental understanding of art/painting is helpful.  Instruction can be differentiated according to the need of each student. Taught by Thomas Knight. 

Supplies: Basic supplies will be provided to the class. Individuals may bring their own materials according to preference as well.

Colorful Abstract Painting

Abstract Painting Processes (ages 14+)

In this class, we will explore the processes for creating abstract art.  We will discuss the theory and history of abstraction that will enhance understanding of this form of visual expression and enable the artist to make work that is deeply meaningful.  This is sure to be an energetic and experimental class with a focus on process more than outcomes.  Taught by Thomas Knight.

Abstract Portrait

Surrealism Techniques (ages 16+)

This class will practice the techniques used in surrealism to access subconscious and dream imagery.  We will cover the methods of painting and composition to effectively communicate this imagery.  In connection with making art, we will discuss the theory and history of surrealism to build a better understanding of the meaning behind the making of surrealist art.  Taught by Thomas Knight.
