Delivery Method:

This course offers an introduction to Oil Painting, the preferred versatile medium to all the master painters in history. The course will start with instruction on materials, colour theory and techniques, colour mixing and use of different brushes, and methods of paint application. There will be a discussion on what a successful subject and composition involves, as well as what is popular in contemporary art currently. Participants will have the opportunity to paint from a still life set up in the studio. Abstraction can be taught to participants who may be interested. The aim is to build confidence in the aspiring artist, starting at the beginner level to develop the confidence to attempt painting independently. The sessions will be interactive, and time will be given individually to each participant to address personal concerns.

Learning Outcomes:

By the end of this course, the students should be able to:

  • Attempt an Oil painting by themselves confidently
  • Be aware of their skill level and potential for higher-level instruction.

  • Understand the therapeutic role of art in creating a balanced emotional state
  • Understand the importance of individuality and self-expression
