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.
The workshop is two hours long and is broken into two sections. To start the students follow a demonstration session with artist and get a chance to try out up to seven different techniques using brush, palette knife, sponge and other materials. At a later date when these sample works dry, one is chosen by the student and mounted, ready to frame.
In the second section of the workshop students work on a 6x6 primed, ready to hang, wooden block to create their own mini scape.
They will finish with two completed pieces of art work for exhibition.
All materials necessary for this workshop are provided: brush, palette knife, sponge, odourless paint thinner, oil paper, block, palette, oil paint and mount.
