Course Description

Finding flow and getting lost in the moments of creating is one of the most important reasons to make art. There are limitless, sometimes overwhelming options for methods of making, with endless mediums and tools.

One way that has stood the test of time is oil painting, and for good reason! There is nothing quite like the smooth, buttery texture of oil paint, thinned to your desired consistency and applied in a variety of ways. Here you will find the benefits of trying out different brushes, substrates, and also some great methods for loosening up your work and in your painting practice. This course will help you to focus on the absolute joy of creating and into the all encompassing “zone” while you paint with oils.
