Painting Canadian Landscapes for Beginners


Sunday, September 8    12:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Instructor: Carly Gordon

Class fee includes paints, brushes, and some other supplies

This class is for the beginner painter to learn how to use oil paints and create a beautiful Canadian landscape painting from photo. Students will learn the basics of mixing oil paint, how to apply it with different textures and tools, and take away skills so they can continue learning and practicing. Techniques that are simple but effective and brilliant colours that add so much to your image will give you a painting that you’ll be excited to take home.

Each student will leave class with a completed medium-sized painting, and a smaller study. Everything you need except your canvas is included in the class fees.
