Thank you for your interest in studying with me. I teach up to twelve artists in each of my classes offered by the E.L. Cord Museum School of the Nevada Museum of Art.
Getting Started with Oils: An Introduction to Painting Techniques and Tools
Monday – Friday, May 13 – 17
9 am – noon
This course is intended to introduce students to traditional painting techniques using oils. Students will gain a good foundational working knowledge of how to setup subjects, blocking, brushwork, mixing color and the use of Neo Megilp medium. The “ala prima” (in one sitting) also called “direct painting” technique will be taught in making still life paintings. Each lesson begins with the concepts to be covered, demonstration of the techniques, hands on experience and ends with suggested homework to be critiqued at the next lesson.
Instructor: David McCamant
Ages: Adult (15+) / Beginners welcome
