This two day workshop will teach you to better understand your paint medium and colour theory basics. We will do hands-on exercises to build our knowledge base so that we can control our medium and make those beautiful colours do what we want them to. The first day will involve paint mixing to build our own colour swatches so that we can understand the differences between opaque and transparent pigments. The second day will combine some of the examples we prepared in day one to create colour and value illusions that every painter must know. This workshop is a condensed version of a previous five-day course. Anyone that had taken the “Oil Painting Skill Development” classes will find mostly new material in this workshop.

Note: the recommended medium for this workshop is oil paint, however, acrylic painters are welcome. We maintain small class sizes to ensure a personalized and welcoming environment. Each student will have their own table to create on in a large, well lit 900 sq ft studio with lots of natural light studio. We continue to follow all guidelines from public health officials.
