Class will meet on March 7 from 9am to 1pm in Lexington. This course will be geared to expand the knowledge of a beginner oil painter. 


In the March 7th class, we will be exploring the following:

  • Expanding your understanding of oil paint itself, its properties, its flaws and strengths and how to apply this information to your painting

  • Advancing your knowledge of brush strokes, brushes, and mediums to create more realistic effects - our line of focus will be landscapes with slight touches on portraits

  • Enhancing your knowledge of painting materials and how the smallest details affects your work - such as cotton or linen canvas, primed or un-primed, etc. 

  • How to work with mixed media to help create unique and visually appealing paintings

  • Enhancing your knowledge of color mixing with limited palettes

  • Working with various mediums and learning how they affect our pieces


Each class will explore different avenues with painting in oil. However, if you can not attend both classes, you are more than welcome to attend one or the other, as both classes will stand independent from each other.


In an effort to lower the cost of the class and provide art instruction for everyone, we are offering students the option of bringing their own materials. You can bring your own art supplies or purchase a supply kit at the time of class registration. If you would like to bring your own materials, please see below for the list of supplies you will need for class. If you choose to buy your supplies from us, simply add the supply kit to your cart on the class page. Supply kits are $20 in addition to the cost of the class. Any supply kits purchased will be ​given to the student the day of the class and will be theirs to keep.


**Please note that we will not have extra materials in class for student use if an item or items are forgotten off the supplies list. It is extremely important that the student come fully prepared. Refunds will not be given if the student arrives without the necessary materials to be able to participate in class.**


Below is a list of items needed to participate in the class. These are the items provided in the supply kit available for purchase:


1 oil paint kit containing primary (red, blue, yellow) colors, titanium white and mars black

1 medium bristle bright

1 medium mop brush

1 small liner brush

1 large bristle flat brush

1 small bottle of linseed oil

1 2-oz to 4-oz bottle of turpenoid 

**Only ONE supply kit is needed for each 2 day class**


All items needed for class, in addition to the list above, will be provided for by TLHArtist. As always, we will be practicing our newly learned information in class. At the end of class, each student will have a finished piece that can be taken home with them. ​
