Oil Painting Prep Class, The Grisaille

May 6, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


The Grisaille: The First Step of Classical Oil Painting

April 15th-May 6th Sundays @ 10-5PM 

In this course we will take you through the fundamentals of oil painting in the Academic Realist Style with the studio’s basic step by step process.

We will be learning the techniques, materials, and process that go into the creating of an Academic Oil Painting. This includes an underpainting in umbers, establishing correct values, modeling and details, brush strokes, paint mixing, and more!

Students will create a Grisaille, a painting made only in grays.  Students will work from a plaster cast.

We are using the Grisaille Method for this workshop because it is an ideal way to learn the techniques of oil without getting distracted by color and it’s complexities.

This course is for complete beginners to advanced painters alike.

You do not need oil painting experience to attend, however it is preferred that students have attended at least one other MFAS class before, though it is not required.

It is also highly recommended that the students signing up for this course attend the Oil Materials Lecture on the 14th 4:30-6PM.


Minimum age: 14
