Introduction to Oil Painting

Introduction to Oil Painting

6-8pm

July 11-August 15 (6 weeks)

This class will teach introductory oil painting methods. Students will learn about various oil painting techniques, including underpainting, alla prima, impasto, glazing, etc. Projects will include both still life and portraiture, in order to build the students' confidence in multiple areas. The first project would ground students in an understanding of how to utilize different chemicals with oil paint. They would begin with a black and white still life. In the next session, once this is dry, they would learn to glaze over their underpainting. Following sessions could include alla prima portraiture, impasto landscapes.

scholarships & aid

FAVA reviews and considers all application for scholarship assistance. While we may not be able to provide a complete scholarship to all those who request it, we are committed to making our classes available to as many people as possible – regardless of individual financial circumstances. For this reason, it is important that all scholarship requests are received well in advance of the class starting date, so we may allocate our available funds accordingly. We may consider any of the following factors when determining eligibility for scholarships:

  • Annual family income
  • Individual or special circumstances
  • Whether the applicant qualifies for the National Free/Reduced Price School Lunch program
    (for students age 18 & younger)


**FAVA also encourages applicants to consider partial scholarship assistance, in which case the student only pays some portion of the class tuition.

All information will be kept confidential and will be used solely to determine the amount of scholarship assistance to be provided.
