VA5 Virtual: Let’s Get Started with Oil Painting

If you have ever wanted to learn how to paint with oils, this class is for you. We will explore all the basics of oil painting for the beginner, including materials and their safe use, color mixing, types of brushwork, and more. Prerecorded demos and techniques will be available for you to watch and try at your leisure. We will also meet live in a Zoom classroom for discussion and feedback. Give it a try and Dena will be your guide! This course includes live Zoom sessions and prerecorded content.

*Virtual Course Policy: Students registered for virtual courses are expected to conduct themselves as if participating in an on-site Bemis course. As a virtual course registrant, Bemis asks that you please be aware of your surroundings during virtual class sessions. Ensure your Zoom camera background is simple and clear of any foot traffic, including family members moving in and out of view, bright backlighting, or anything else that would be distracting to fellow students and the instructor. If need be, you can choose to turn off your camera in Zoom and turn it back on when you’re ready.
