'Oil painting from scratch'
Lin Kerr.

2018 Course listing coming soon.

Monday 24th to Tuesday 25th July
This course is suitable for absolute beginners whether you are uncertain of your drawing skills or terrified of oil painting - because oil painting is actually surprisingly easy! It's just 'where to start' that can be daunting. We will start with a very simple still life, working from observation, after doing some tonal boards to get the 'feel' of painting with oils. There will be demonstrations and advice and after only two days, you should leave with one or two small 8" x 10" paintings.
Materials cost: oil paints will be supplied for 10 for the course. This includes solvent, medium and loan of palette and palette knife. If you wish to bring your own paints, there will be information in the materials list sent later - but please then contribute 2 for solvent and medium. Odourless solvents are used at Summer School.
Oils from Scratch LIN KERR is an internationally recognised artist and has been teaching art for thirty years in various media at a wide range of levels. She has a BA Fine Arts Hons., is a fully qualified art teacher and has recently returned to painting in oils after a number of years in graphic design. Her interests lie in exploring light in the reflections and shadows of everyday objects and seasonal ephemera.
