Oil Painting Lessons

Painting Lessons

Tuesdays: 3:30 – 5:30 or 6:00 to 8:00 PM

Oil painting class for ages 14 and over. All levels are welcome. All supplies provided.

Learn how to paint with oil paint in an impressionistic style.

I have a systematic way of painting and teaching, which moves from broad shapes and dark colors to smaller shapes and lighter colors. We use a limited palette of professional Da Vinci and Gamblin oil paints.

We are currently offering two oil painting sessions on Tuesdays: 3:30 – 5:30 or 6:00 – 8:00. See the registration page for the current schedule. Classes continue year-round except for when I am traveling. The classes are open to older teens and adults.

Everyone works at their level and pace. The classes are oil painting lessons. This is not a paint and sipe format. Most paintings require a minimum of three classes.  

You can work from your photo reference or one of mine. You can see my available references here.

Before your first class, please email me and let me know if you will be using one of my images or send a couple of the images you are thinking of, and we will select a good reference image. An Ipad or laptop are the best options.

Printed photos work as well.

I provide all of the supplies. You can see a list of the supplies we use here.

Cost: This is a weekly enrollment class. $45 per student for every class you attend – refunds when canceled 24 hours before class (a small processing fee applies). All supplies included. Registration closes four hours before class. As the classes get full, I recommend registering for three to four classes at a time to save your spot.  

I routinely post lessons on my blog, so be sure and follow along! https://picketfenceartstudio.com/blog-post/

As always, let me know if you have any questions.
