From artist and certified Master Teacher Doug Whitfield: “Painting with only a few essential materials can save you money and help you paint better paintings than you ever imagined!”

The objective of this 6-week course, comprised of 2-hour sessions on Thursday afternoons, is to make oil painting less complicated for the beginner or intermediate, in a way that is easier to understand, easier to do and a mere fraction of the cost.  This uncluttered, practical manner of oil painting makes the experience more accessible and more enjoyable.

Classes meet Thursdays: September 29, October 6, 13, 20, 27, and November 3 from 1:30 – 3:30 PM.  Cost for members is $220; nonmembers $250. Payment is due at or before the first class.
