Beginner - Intermediate



Enrollment Deadline


About the Course

Alison Stinely, MFA


Students will learn the fundamentals of oil painting from direct observation in this fast-paced, one day workshop. Topics will include: mixing accurate color, sighting and measuring, and composing the picture plane. The workshop will culminate with the creation of a small oil painting from a directly observed still life arrangement. No "art-ing" experience is required; this workshop is perfect for beginning artists and will also be beneficial for those who work at an intermediate level.

All necessary supplies will be provided by Foundation Art Academy. Students may bring their own supplies if they wish, but this is not necessary.

The workshop takes place from from 10:AM to 4:30PM. A 30 minute lunch break will be taken half-way through the day. Students should pack a lunch. Beverages will be provided. Refrigeration is available.

*Enrollment Fee: $125
