Ever see these techniques referenced in art museums and wonder what they mean?

All of these are various techniques artists have developed throughout history to help make painting difficult subject matters more approachable and allow artists to explore the transparent and sculptural nature of oil paint.

In this class, students will learn how to think about their artwork in layers and explore some of the mysterious interactions of color that captivated artists throughout history.

Over this 11-week class, students will learn different methods to efficiently sketch with paint, experiment with various methods layering paint, and make artwork that is in dialogue with artist through history.

Please note: Safety will be a primary concern of this class, but this class will use traditional art materials which if handled improperly are hazardous to one’s health. Due to the use of solvents, this class is not recommended for students with respiratory conditions.
