Introduction to Oil Painting

In this workshop students have the opportunity to work with oil paint; a medium not traditionally used in post primary schools. The texture and vibrant colours of oil paint make it a satisfying material to use with rewarding results, even for beginners.  Students work on different techniques using brush, palette knife and sponge and will finish with two completed pieces for exhibition.

All materials necessary to follow video are provided: brush, palette knife, sponge, odourless paint thinner, oil paper, block, palette, paint and mount.
