Continuing Oil Painting
February 22, 2019 - March 22, 2019
Friday 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
In this 5 week oil painting course, we explore still life subjects through the eye of a different master each week. We look for the possibilities of form, composition and color with a different themed still life each week as we study one master in particular while enjoying the wonderful medium of oil paint. All are welcome; you need not have taken Intro to Oils to sign up for this class.
