What you'll learn in this oil painting class:

Artists participating in the Public Works of Art Project in 1933 and 1934 were charged with painting subjects which ranged from portraits to cityscapes as well as landscapes and rural life. This project yielded an amazing body of work that provides inspiration for artists beginning to learn the techniques of oil painting.

View the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s online collection of Public Works of Art Project paintings to see how other artists employed the painting techniques you learn through a combination of lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on experimentation. Working from still-life arrangements, explore basic painting techniques, including color-mixing, scumbling, and glazing to gain the technical background and experience you need to get started as a painter.

Experience in drawing is helpful but not necessary. Guidelines for handling toxic chemicals and their waste products are stressed.
