Oil Painting with Value and Color

  • Red Door Studios 1427 W 9th St Kansas City, MO, 64101 United States (map)

6 week oil painting class with Lacey Lewis January 18th through February 22nd 10am-12:30pm. $250/student. March 1st and 8th will be reserved as make-up days in case of cancellations due to inclement weather.

This class is ideal for:

  • someone who wants to start oil painting for the first time
  • experienced artists who want a better sense of depth and form in their work
  • anyone wanting to better understand color and paint mixing

Students will first work monochromatically before learning how to understand and classify color in an objective manner. We will discuss how to choose a palette that is appropriate for the subject, how to know which colors to mix in order to achieve the desired result, and how to deviate from the reference in order to create a more compelling image. While this class will be heavy in color theory, concepts regarding composition and materials will also be covered.

In order to make the experience more personal for each individual student, Lacey encourages students to make her aware of any specific subject interests (portraits, figures, landscapes, etc) they may have. The last two weeks of class will devoted to helping students develop more personal compositions.

All classes will take place at Red Door Studios, 1427 West 9th St. Suite #302, KCMO 64101. Contact Lacey with any questions!
