Beginning Oil Painting Workshop

In this 3 hour workshop, we will cover how to start an oil painting and learn foundation techniques such as how to hold a brush, how to use a palette, and how much oil and paint to use. This workshop will focus on values and transitions, using a monochromatic palette. Students will produce a monochromatic painting from photo reference. 
Students should have previous drawing experience.
