This is a continuation of the Traditional Oil Painting Techniques, A Session course. Students will have the opportunity to continue working on a previous project/painting/ drawing or start a new one. Daily demonstrations, one on one instruction, and critique would be offered based on the choice of their medium. This class will go into highly specialized techniques of color-mixing, brushwork, paint application, and a review of art history. Students who did not participate in Session A are welcome to join! The tradition of oil-painting has evolved over the centuries because of the access and discovery of new pigments, resources, and careful passing-on of the baton of knowledge and experience that have come with it. The objective of this classical drawing and painting series class is to offer palatable information to learn and apply traditional oil painting techniques of the masters, past and present, through a series of demonstrations and exercises. The various techniques of painting such as “alla-prima”, direct or indirect (layered/ Dutch/Flemish) methods, basics of color theory, composition and design, materials and application will be covered in this class. Students will work on an individual project based on their interest and receive daily feedback and guidance. This French Academism (19th century) and Atelier Approach (15th to 17th century) series is broken down into several classes to give students the opportunity to learn new techniques and time for daily practice, artist demonstrations, and individual critique sessions. The course is taught by award-winning realist painter and writer Kamlika Chandla. For questions, artist bio or more information email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.kamlikachandla.com. Easels, oil paints, and stands will be provided by the class. Students can purchase a ready package for the class that includes appropriate brushes, panels, and a throwaway pallette.
