Six Weeks of Oil Painting Ages 8-12
October 15 @ 4:00 pm - 5:15 pm
Spark your inner-artist and feel fulfilled with beginner oil painting classes. Relax and let go as you learn to express your true self with like-minded artists. Learn the fundamental painting techniques of self-expression through beginner oil painting. All of our beginner oil painting classes are kept small so that you receive a lot of one-on-one attention! Students will create a variety of oil paintings while exploring color mixing and color theory, and learning many techniques and styles.
Masterpieces will be kept at MAKE and kept “secret” for the entire 6 weeks. Friends and family will be invited to attend an Art Show on the final day and all projects will go home with the artist after the big reveal.
Meeting 4-5:15 pm Tuesdays October 15, October 22, October 29, November 5, November 12 and November 19.
Curriculum is created by Kijsa Housman, utilizing her classical education (BFA in Studio Art, graduate education in Art History), 20-plus years as a professional artist, and her 17 years as a mom! She adds in tons of fun, lots of neat information, and a great understanding for why art is created by the masters, how art is created using proper techniques and variety of materials, and the importance of the process and creativity.
