About this event

This one-day workshop will introduce you to the basics of oil painting. Whether you are an absolute beginner or someone who wants to get back into oil painting, the class will help you get up and running. We will cover such basics as: palette set-up, types of brushes, mediums, painting surfaces, paints and various ways of beginning a painting. You will practise colour mixing and brushwork and take inspiration from a wide variety of amazing paintings from art history. In addition to some short exercises, you will get the chance to paint a small painting on canvas. At the end of the day, you will take away a list of materials and notes, your small painting, and basic skills to get going with oil paints.

This is a small group class with 9 students max and a great deal of individual attention is given. Marcia Teusink, the instructor, is a practising artist with over 20 years experience teaching painting and drawing. The class takes place in aprivate studio in Stoke Newington, just south of Clissold Park (access up two flights of stairs). We will break for an hour for lunch from 12:30-1:30. Tea and biscuits provided!
