  • Pickle Street School Studio 2980 134th Avenue Hopkins, MI, 49328 United States (map)


This workshop is designed to help those that are new to oil painting to learn the basics for getting started! I will be covering how to use your materials as well as talking about some of the beginning fundamentals for creating a dimensional painting full of life! I will be targeting design, layout,values, and color mixing. It will be a full and informative daylong event!

I will begin with instruction and a quick demo in the morning. In the afternoon you will set up and paint along with me in a step by step tutorial. I will also be going around to provide you each with individual instruction.
