Afternoon Oil Painting 

With Elena Cantor 

Make Sunday and Tuesday afternoons a time to develop your art. This class is specifically designed students interested in furthering their understanding of oil painting with personalized instruction.  Elena will walk you through all thesteps that you need to know to get started in the exciting and rich world of oil painting from the most basic to the most complex.

 

From this class you can expect to learn:

  • How to pick and prepare your materials and supplies

  • Composition: proper use of space and color harmony to make a painting that speaks to you and others 

  • The method of sight-size to create realistic paintings

  • Imprimitura and Under-painting 

  • Limited Palette approach and how to achieve your desired color by mixing 

  • Oil Painting mediums 

  • Understanding Oil paint: how to paint a painterly painting, build impastos and avoid cracking

 

Students may choose to either paint from life a still life of their choosing, copy a photo or a master's work.

A short demo will start each class. Students will then work on their projects with Elena’s guidance. 

Elena will give personal instruction for each student’s level of experience. Every student will work on individual projects and receive personalized feedback.  Advanced students will be challenged by more complex projects. 

 

Elena Cantor will share her classical eye and knowledge of drawing and painting to help students develop their skills and discover their own personal style.
