Introduction to Oil Painting Class - At Boo-U

I'm teaching an introduction to oils class this fall at UW Baraboo/Sauk Co.
This class is designed for beginners, or for more experienced painters who want to get into the habit of painting more often. Students will create a new painting each class period.

The best part is, we provide all the supplies!

Following is the official writeup:

Thursday nights 6-9pm at the Art Studio here on campus. Class would meet October 7,14,21,28 Nov. 4,11.
Instructor: Kyle Martin
Experience oil painting, and complete a new painting every week. This studio class will be painting intensive, and is designed for those who have never lifted a brush. The focus will be on values (light and dark), color and composition. Each class period the instructor will set up and paint a still life, and lead a demo focusing on a different technique.

Class one - Value painting in black and white (a great warm up for those experiencing oils for the first time).
Class two - Imprimatura (learn how the old masters used underpainting and layers to create dynamic effects).
Class three - Full color (sensitize your color eye, and learn to paint what you see). Class four - Knife painting in brilliant color (leave the brushes behind an learn the joy of color.)
Class five - Broken Color (the impressionist technique broken down)
Class six - Bringing it all together (combining techniques).

Questions and conversation are encouraged during the class. The instructor will be able to suggest additional reading and websites. Please join us!

Cost is $119 which includes supplies. Register by sending me a note and check to:
