Join David Heskin & Aloria Weaver for 3 Days of Training in the Philosophy and Practice of Oil Painting.
. . . . .
As always, we will be delving into the properties and working characteristics of oil paint and oil painting mediums. In this new class series, we will also be deeply exploring the philosophical meaning-making aspects of the materials and processes of our chosen craft.
This is not a completion-based class. We will be working on multiple small studies and painting exercises throughout the course, and each student will ultimately determine the level of completion that they will achieve in 3 days, particularly by making use of the week in between sessions to continue working and exploring the techniques and methods that we explore in class.
Through dedicated daily practice, the processes of direct and indirect painting techniques will be explored from start to finish, adjusting the formulas of our mediums to suit each approach. By de-mystifying traditional materials and mediums, a connection is made to the elemental sources from which oil painting supplies are sourced.
The classroom curriculum is tuned to logical and practical solutions in the theory and practice of oil painting, including the permanence and stability of our artwork, as well as studio safety and materials toxicity.
Practicing artists tend to gain the most out of our intensives, but the class is open to all levels. Wherever our students are on their art path, they will be able to use the hands-on knowledge in this course to exponentiate their skills to new levels of understanding and comfort with the complex array of artist's materials that are available.
Specific information regarding materials will be sent to registered students.
