A foundation course for artists’ already working in other media or a great place to start for beginners. Some drawing and prior painting experience helpful. Oil paints possess unique qualities and when combined with compatible mediums, varnish and supports produce rich layered effects.
Campbell Folk School has a wonderful studio, great food and the gardens and grounds nestled in the south facing mountains providing us with great views. Several historic buildings, barns and open vistas make it a pleasure to paint plein-air. We will do some light walking, so be sure to bring a sun hat, sunglasses and comfortable shoes. Visit their website or call them for a catalog. 1-800-FOLK-SCH or 828-837-2775.

Using a painted monochromatic sketch, or under-painting, learn how to build a foundation in the field. Contact me for materials list and to enroll. Friday – Sunday, 9am – 4pm.
