Draw & Paint with Pommier - OIL PORTRAIT PAINTING (Beginner)
Study Oil Painting at the Visual Arts Center (VAC) with Laura Pommier. Oil paint is a medium well known for its versatile, luminous and forgiving qualities. It is one of the oldest mediums in art history and still used today in its original form. Beginners in this class will learn how to paint portraits in oil. Mix and use oil paints with progression into creating volume expression and true likeness.
Laura will introduce everything that goes into making a successful portrait. From mixing oil paint and perfecting a basic head sketch, you will progress into creating volume, expression and a true likeness.
For your convenience, the Visual Arts Center offers an Oil Supply Kit with professional quality items from the VAC Art & Supply Store for a discounted price of $87, an estimated value of $195 based on Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Pricing (MSRP).
