      Oil painting is one of the oldest and most versatile, adventurous and exciting painting methods at our disposal.
      This course introduces the Methods and Materials of Oil Painting that will include tutor demonstrations and the exploration of the work of successful contemporary and historic artists.
      We will look at and refer to the work of contemporary art practice and historical artists' work and how they influence our own practice.
      Students will put into practice what they have observed and learnt and will work at their own pace and individual level. Individual tuition and guidance will be given.

      We will experiment with a variety of working surfaces and investigate their uses and influences as surface textures can be an important integral influence on the painting. Work can range from small to very large scale work.
      The course will include:
      * Surfaces
      * Preparation of surfaces
      * Stretching canvases
      * The grisaille
      * Alla Prima
      * Glazing
      * Application of paint
      * The visual elements of line, tone, colour, shape, texture, rhythm, composition and perspective
      * The use of sketchbooks and portfolio building
      * The study of other contemporary artists' work.
      * The study of the great masters
      * Learn and explore ways of working including mixed media and additional mediums.
