with visiting artist Sarah Sedwick
Whether you’re a total beginner, an experienced artist looking to try a new medium, or a painter returning to oils after some time away, this three-day workshop has something for you! Get familiar with oil paint and energize your art making practice with a focus on the fundamentals of loose, realistic painting. We’ll explore topics including basic materials, color, value, mixing as well as the all-important question: “What should I paint?” Beginning with value - the dark and light relationships between objects - we’ll detour through complementary colors, and then move on to a primary color palette, mixing up a full spectrum from three tubes of paint. Working with a limited palette has so many benefits, and can be applied to portrait, still life, landscape - or any kind of painting you want to do! Begin your oil painting journey or give your skills a tune up! This workshop is still life based. Students of all levels welcome, ages 15 and above.
