Beginning Oil Painting Class

For those of you in the area, I will be offering a college prep class for high school students starting in January, that will focus on good ol' oil painting.  Recently I had the pleasure to work with high school students as the visiting artist at Ravenscroft School in Raleigh.  I found that I really enjoy working with these bright, open, rising artists.  It should be a fun class - so please tell your favorite teenage artist!    

Winter Session
Dates: January 17, 24, 31, February 7, 14, 21
Time: 6pm-8:30pm
This course will cover the essentials of oil painting from proper surface preparation to color mixing. Working from still life set ups, students will explore painting materials, learn about composition, color theory and paint application. Using direct observation to gain skills and confidence, these finished paintings will be portfolio ready!
Instructor: Alia El-Bermani
Tuition: $150/$135 members
Material Lists will be provided upon registration

Please contact Artspace to register.

  1. Have you thought about releasing some video tutorials? I'd totally pay for something like that.

  2. Hello Sugendran, I am not interested in releasing any videos at this time. If that changes in the future, I will let everyone know here on the blog. Thank you for your interest.
