Discover the art of oil painting.

Students will use water soluble oil paints, which can be used without solvents, making them a safer and more environmentally friendly option. Learn colour theory, shading, ways to describe space, use of light, composition, and the particularities of painting with water soluble oils.

Disclaimer: Nude and/or costumed models may be used at the discretion of the instructor. Instructors will inform students beforehand if they opt to include models in their lesson plan.
