Arthaus Sip and Paint Class: Oil Painting

2.5 hours 1 to 10 label $35 - $80 ($35 for Standard price, $80 for Includes Painting Kit)

Unlock some of the basics of oil painting in this fun and accessible oil painting class. In this weekly drop in workshop Jason will take you through the process of building up an oil painting from scratch and personally work you through the process so that at the end of the night you have a painting to take home with you.

At the start of each class you will be presented with a canvass board with the initial sketch already done so we can get straight into the painting (if you want to learn about the drawing stages there will be other classes for that). From there you will learn the basics of mixing your own paint, care of brushes, how to select instruments and materials, blending colours… the fundamentals.

People have often commented that they find oil paint an intimidating medium and are nervous to take that first step. What I’ve found is that once you get you know it a little, it's really quite friendly. With the bar open and a relaxed atmosphere you should have a bunch of fun along the way to learning the basics of oil painting.

- $35: use our paints for the night
- $80: your own kit to take home with you, with all the basics you will need valued at $120.
