Non-Toxic Oil Painting Classes at Port Moody Arts Centre - Classes Start September 14, 2015


Painting in oils can be non-toxic and non-intimidating even for the absolute beginner.

We will start with simple exercises to learn basic oil painting techniques, learning about indirect (painting in layers) painting and then move on to a simple direct (painting in one layer) painting.

This class is perfect for beginners.  All supplies are includes.

The painting above is an alla prima (in one sitting) painting that I painted during the summer from life.  While the drawing skills greatly affect the end result, the concepts are the same so for beginning painters as they are for advanced.  We will start with very simple subjects of the student's choice.  Each student will work on a piece or two through out the course.

If you are interested in joining the class please register at and please register early as the Arts Centre as classes are cancelled a week prior to the start date if the minimum number of students have not been reached.

Graydon Parrish Workshop - Fabric Study

High Chroma Blocks
If you would like to see what I have been up to this summer, check out my Fine Art Blog.

I learned so much and can't wait to apply everything over the next few months.

I will also be teaching an oil painting class starting in September and while we will not be using Munsell per se, we will definitely be applying much of what I have learned.
