Cela Janiec
Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(4)
In this 4-week course students will learn the basics of oil painting, composition, color theory, light and shadow, and other important art techniques and know-how.

Class experience

Students will learn the basics of the following:
• Color theory
• Composition
• Shadow and light
• History of oil paintings
• Safety measures when working with oil
• Brush skills and other artistic tools
Canvas--canvas boards work just fine and some students may prefer them. These are wood flats with canvas on top as opposed to stretched canvas. An appropriate size can be between around standard letter size, 8 1/2" x 11". (A pack of five 8" x 10" boards goes for ~$8.49)

Linseed oil, this is for thinning the paints and cleaning our brushes, a non-toxic alternative to turpentine. ($11.99 for 4oz)
You can also purchase any of the following, but these other oils will increase drying time, and be wary of potential allergens.
    • Walnut oil.
    • Poppy seed oil
    • Safflower oil

Do not use the following, these will make it that your paint never dries.
    • Coconut oil
    • Olive oil

Oil paints, at minimum red, blue, yellow, black, and white. (A value pack for 24 colors goes for $10.99, please do not feel the need to buy expensive paints.) (Do not buy cobalt, cadmium, or lead-white, these are toxic when breathed in or ingested.)

Brushes. We want a variety of shapes and sizes. (A decent value pack can go for $10)
Gloves (Gardening gloves work fine)
Apron and/or paint clothes - Oils will stain any fabric they come in contact with so please be mindful of what students are wearing during class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Oil paints require a level of safety just as well as when painting with other mediums. It is recommended that the student be in a well-ventilated or large space and has gloves (gardening gloves work fine) and an apron fine for painting. Clothes specifically used for painting work as well.
