Oil Painting 101
I will be teaching Oil Painting 101. We will be exploring light, shadow, color theory, form, texture, start of landscape painting and at the very end start talking about conceptual art! In all my classes I like to teach and incorporate mindfulness practices in the art making! Hope to see you there !
