Class Experience

Students will work individually. The length of time each student takes for each assignment will vary widely, depending on the student. During the final week, students will likely spend several hours working on a painting.
Below, I will provide a list of necessary and recommended materials, but it is not exhaustive. I strongly recommend spending some time in the oil-painting section of the neighborhood hobby store to see what options are available. What's available in any store at any time will vary, and that's especially true these days. Necessary items: A few packs of canvas panels for experimentation One medium-sized canvas (perhaps 16x12 inches) for the final project Recommended brushes (always go with natural fibers): Bristle brushes, flat, sizes 1, 6, 10, 12 Script brush Check out other brushes -- you don't know what you like until you've experimented. You may find some useful oil painting brush sets. Paints: Titanium white Black (ivory or lamp black) Prussian blue and/or French ultramarine Red (I like to have permanent red and both cadmium red medium and deep, but you may choose to go with just one) Green such as oxide of Chromium and/or sap green Yellow Ochre (also check out the other yellows, like the various cadmium yellow varieties, particularly for oil paints) Burnt Umber and/or VanDyke brown Any other colors you see and like. Paint thinner for oil painting(I recommend Mona Lisa brand) Small palette knife -- blade of about an inch. Shape should be spade, diamond, or similar.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No live meetings, and maybe some time outside of class.
I will provide links to video tutorials each week.
