This will be a course in oil painting taught by Anna Festa, one of our very talented artists. Each participant will bring in the picture that they want to start painting or work on a piece they have already started and need help with. This is a great course for the beginning oil painter or for a more advanced painter that wants to improve their skills. The class will be limited to ten students so sign up soon. Bring the supplies that you need to complete your painting, if you want to use our supplies there will be an additional $5 fee.
Extra fine sharpie marker
pencil and eraser
cheap set of watercolor pencils
12 x 16″ disposable palette or tempered glass that size

oil paints (any brand that you like): Ivory black, Titanium white, Cadmium yellow light and medium, Cadmium red light, Alizarin crimson, Cerulean blue, Ultramarine blue, Phthalo blue, Sap green, Yellow ochre, Burnt sienna or burnt umber, Raw umber.
These are colors that you will use frequently in painting. As time goes on, you will add a few to this repertoire, but will find, these are the ones you always end up going back to.
Brushes are really a matter of choice, but ones I suggest you start with are:
#2 flat, #4 flat, #2 filbert, #4 or 6 filbert, thin brushes, a liner brush and a fan brush of your choice.
Canvas of your choice
Ruler, the longest you can find, 18 – 24 inches if possible
Small notebook for notes if you would like
All of these items are available to purchase at the gallery, so don’t worry if you do not have some of the materials.
