Study Oil Painting with Margaret Egli for All Level students. Learning to paint in the Neo-Impressionistic style is easy! Learn the easy steps of oil painting in this style, including, how to create on a flat surface: three dimensions, distance, depth, light, and shadow. Your canvass becomes a fascinating and colorful impression. Learn short cuts to painting in oil; ways to make a catching composition; handling your paints, mixing and storing your own colors, using energy between contrasting colors reflected light to your advantage and much more. The goal is not to impose a style, but to enhance yours, enabling you to discover talents that can only be realized with painting. Theory plus demonstration. 

For your convenience, the Visual Arts Center offers an Oil Supply Kit with professional quality items from the VAC Art & Supply Store at a discounted price of $87, an estimated value of $99 based on Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Pricing (MSRP). Purchase an oil class kit online (click here), by phone or in person at the VAC Front Desk.
