April 5, 12, 19, & 26 from 4:00 – 6:00 pm 

This is a four-session oil painting technique class for everyone from beginners to advanced painters! You will learn how to make a small still-life painting from start to finish using a traditional 19th-century style of painting. The class will cover drawing, color mixing, and how to create a three-dimensional form in your painting. Using a pre-modern technique – finishing as we go – students will learn how to understand and overcome optical illusions when seeing, mixing, and applying paint. This technique will also allow us to improvise and change our compositions as we go along. All supplies included. Please enter through the 5th Street Door.

Teaching Artist: Sarah Bird 

Cost: $110 Member / $125 Non-Member

Artist Bio: Sarah graduated from the Grand Central Atelier –  a four-year intensive in traditional realist oil painting techniques – in 2014.
