Classes in the Art of Oil Painting in San Diego

Explore the rich tradition of oil paint. Because oil paints dry slowly, you can work “wet on wet” to blend colors, layer, and continuously manipulate your painting. The thick nature of oil paint allows you to use heavy brushstrokes that can stand alone or get layered into a masterpiece. Beginners welcome. All materials provided!
