Oil painting can seem like a daunting skill to master. However, oil painting is one of the most malleable and forgiving painting techniques. This six week oil painting class will introduce you to the basics of oil painting. You will learn how to prep canvases, mix paints, and of course, paint with oils! We will paint from still life compositions. You are welcome to bring in any objects you’d like to paint to class.

About the Instructor
Jane Sherman has always been an artist at heart. When she found oil painting eight years ago, she discovered that magical place where the world disappears and time stands still. She studied painting, drawing and printmaking at Fleisher Art Memorial in Philadelphia and apprenticed under the renowned Philadelphia artist James Dupree. Currently, she has started painting plein air, and you might spot her around town with her easel set up, painting, and oblivious to the world around her.
