'Since it's origins in the 7th century, oil painting has always acted as a record of history and form of therapeutic/emotional expression. Misunderstood as highly complex and even mysterious, oil paint actually stands as one of the most forgiving of all painting mediums due to it's long drying times and subsequent space to pin-point desired details and effects. Each class we will work and build on our individual paintings in layers! I promise you won't believe what you take home!'
