This camp is ideal for anyone who wants to begin working in water-soluble oil paint. Learn about the basic materials, techniques, and strategies for oil paintings. Explore color mixing and learn tips for getting just the right tint or shade. Using still-life objects, portraits, patterns and designs for inspiration, you will be guided step by step through creating several original oil paintings. We will explore the styles of the “old Masters” along with contemporary artists, copying and developing our own styles as we go.  Each day will introduce one or more techniques, such as underpainting, impasto painting, glazing, and dry brush. Students will leave with three to five completed pieces, a fresh outlook on this versatile medium.
