Chesterton-Art-CenterMark VanderVinne will be offering a "How to Paint with Oils" Workshop on Friday and Saturday, June 6-7 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., with a break for lunch. This 2-day workshop will cover the basics of oil painting, including best practices of set up & materials, mediums, direct painting techniques, mixing colors and an introduction to the fundamentals of art — drawing, value, color and edges. The students will do exercises and small paintings to familiarize themselves with oils by working with simple shapes from life and photos.

Mark comments that, "by the end of the class, I want the students to walk away with a more confident understanding of the medium, it’s benefits and versatility, and experience the fun and joy of painting with oils". The cost of the 2-day workshop is $120 for members and $145 for non-members. A supply list will be provided to everyone who registers. Space is limited.
