Next Step Beginning Oils

Julie Dobson Miner
If you have taken the First Step Beginning Oils class or have painted in oils before this class is for you. This ongoing class will take you through the entire process from concept to completion of a painting. Julie will gently help you first paint what you see and eventually will let you work independently. Most classes will begin with a demo, small discussion/lecture or sharing to increase your knowledge of all the aspects of art including drawing, value, color, planning for success and how to move beyond your reference /not be restricted by it.

The instructor will use traditional oil paints, however, students can also use water mixable oils or acrylics. Julie promotes learning to mix colors by use of a suggested limited palette (warm and cool primaries) as well as limited use of solvents and safe handling practices. Beginner student projects will be offered and eventually progress to help you find your own artistic voice. Julie has a wealth of knowledge to share, and continuing students will keep growing in their knowledge and skill level.

Starter kits that include most of what you will need are available for purchase at WBCA.  You can also use the instructor’s supplies for a fee.
