March Oil Painting Sessions Set

Mixed Fruit, Karen Gale

The March Oil Painting session starts Thursday, March 3rd.

If you’ve been worried that oil painting might be too difficult, don’t worry.  There’s no mistake you can’t fix because the medium is so flexible.

Materials don’t need to be cost prohibitive either, because Karen teaches color mixing with only three basic colors.

Once you’ve given oils a chance, you’ll never go back!

And here’s a hearty endorsement from one of Karen’s recent students:

“I love your teaching style, Karen.  I’m enjoying your class very much.  I have to say, I normally don’t take art classes, but you’ve changed my mind with this one.  You take time with each student, and I’ve learned some great new techniques.”  Jan Layne, student in the January session of Karen’s oil painting class.

This is an ongoing oil painting class that takes participants from where they are to the next level. Karen has been teaching art for eight years and is experienced in teaching beginning students as well as those who have been painting for years.

Class participants will learn the elements of art and design, classic painting techniques, and color theory through the process of creating their own paintings. Each session is three hours long.

Tuition:  Students pay $165 for 4 sessions at a time.  There is an additional $20 supply fee per period if students don’t have their own (bring materials fee to class for the teacher directly).  If students know they will miss one of the sessions there will be make-up session on Thursday, March 31st.

Time:  Thursdays, Mar 3, 10, 17, 24 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Location:  Hoffman Center for the Arts, 594 Laneda Avenue, Manzanita
