Intro to Oil Painting

Event Category

Arts & DIY

Event Overview

Learn to create realism while listening to your intuition, and expressing yourself freely with Jen!

During this three hour class we will go through the step by step process of completing an oil portrait. We will use a reference photo that I will send you. We will focus on correct proportions, composition, and paint application. You will watch me paint, work on your painting, and receive feedback. You will be encouraged to find your personal creative voice, listen to your instincts, and play! No experience required.

Jen Starling has been teaching youth and adults in a variety of settings for over twenty years, she has an elementary Teaching License and currently teach art at The Art Student League in Denver CO and Curtis Center for the Arts. Her teaching philosophy is positive, encouraging, and inclusive. She gives individual feedback both online and in-person, and encourage creativity while teaching technique.
