What will I learn?
Oil painting is a complex subject. Therefore, we start in this workshop with the basics. For this you will first get to know the material properly. This includes the correct handling, washing the brushes, applying layers but also the painting grounds that you can use. After the introduction to the materials, you will begin with the first exercises to warm up for your first small still life. You will soon realize how much fun oil painting is and the beautiful color results. The best part is that oil paints have proven themselves over hundreds of years in terms of quality and longevity. Further topics in this workshop are composition, perspective and proportions.

What will I need to bring?
First of all: curiosity and a good attitude. You will receive a list of materials via email after you register (If you don’t own any materials, the purchase cost can be quite high. If you think this is too much at the beginning, you can also use materials from the Academy for a fee and then decide if you want to buy them or not. The cost is therefore about 40 – 250 €, depending on what materials you already have).
