Mindful Landscape Oil Painting for Beginners

with Christopher Reed


Class has begun

Have you dabbled in tempera, acrylics or watercolors, but have become curious about trying oils? Learn to navigate oil’s challenges and take advantage of the benefits: brighter colors, slower dry time, ease in blending, minimized color change through drying process, etc. Gain an understanding of mixing oil colors, paint application, composition, and value, and be introduced to new styles such as Impressionism and American Tonalism. In a supportive, meditative and relaxed setting, get to know oils, while further exploring your own unique style of landscape painting through photographs and demonstrations. Open to those with experience as well to build on previous oil painting skills. Supply list provided once class determined to run. 

Chris graduated from Bowdoin College with a BA in Visual Arts. He is a painter, exhibitor, and art teacher inspired by the synthesis of nature, the evolving play of light, and each artist’s unique, mindful expression of feelings and interpretation.
