Intro to Oil Painting (2 Sessions) | Ages 14+

In this two-night painting course, we will use a limited color palette and a still life to learn the basics of oil painting. You will learn brush handling techniques, color mixing, and the “science” behind building up an oil painting.

This workshop meets twice on Tues, December 5 & 12, 5:30pm – 7:30pm.

All supplies included. TMA members receive 10% off all registrations.

Cristian Andersson | Art Educator 

Cristian Andersson is an artist who works out of Matchbook Studio in Appleton, Wis. While he primarily creates abstract oil paintings, in 2016 he started branching off into installation and performance pieces that deal with contemporary concerns: the overwhelming nature of our news, navigating interpersonal communication as it becomes more abstracted through social media, and the balance between notions of the self and the greater community. He is also involved in community art events: curating small exhibitions of local artists, teaching classes to middle and high school students, and working with students from UW-Oshkosh in an annual off-campus invitational exhibition.
