Beginning Oil Painting

Instructor: Gus Hoffman

Prerequisites: Beginning Drawing or equivalent

This is an introduction to the basic materials and traditional techniques of oil painting. Students use inanimate objects as themes for pictorial composition. The knowledge students acquire in Beginning Oil Painting is absolutely essential to all other oil painting classes, including all Still Life, Figure, Portrait, and Landscape courses.

This class takes place in our 3rd floor atelier with ample north light, which can be supplemented with numerous artificial lighting options. Still life setups for this class are chosen by the instructor and change for every class.
