This course is for the beginner or the advanced beginner. Students will be asked to work from still life and from photographic reference of their choice. The goal is to understand how “to see” the world in a new way and learn to express that through the medium of oil painting. Sean will give individual instruction to you as he walks around to critique your work and give individual attention.




The class will start with a basic palette to help you understand color mixing. As we progress you may add to your palette. Note: It is important to have your photographic reference for the first class, so we can talk about how you will use that reference and/or if you may need additional photo reference to help your work.
