11/14/2015 Introduction to Oil Sticks with Paul deMarrais (10am - 3pm) $75.00  

 

This class will introduce you to an exciting new way to create oil paintings using Paul deMarrais’ line of oil sticks.  All oil sticks and painting boards are included in the cost of the class.

Paul’s oil sticks are made of walnut oil, waxes, and dry permanent artist pigments.  These sticks allow you to merge drawing and painting techniques and to paint in a very direct manner.  You won’t need all the gear and technical knowledge associated with tube painting, but can obtain some of the same effects. 

Paul will demonstrate and work with individual artists throughout the workshop.  He will discuss color theory and painting ideas that can help you elevate your personal expression.  He will bring images for you to work from or you may bring your own. 

There is a world of potential and possibilities with this new medium.  Join Paul for a challenging and fun exploration of oil sticks!
