Description

Master the essential skills of landscape oil painting in the four-part Landscapes in Oil course at the Santa Paula Art Museum. Join artist Gabriel Islas for step-by-step projects that will teach you the basic elements of composition, color and value, atmospheric perspective, and traditional techniques in oil painting. The four class sessions will include a mix of lessons, demonstrations, and individual feedback to build your landscape practice:

Module 1: How to choose and refine reference materials and outline a strong sketch from which to build.
Module 2: Techniques of underpainting to establish value and lay the groundwork for atmospheric perspective and local color.
Module 3: Lecture and demo on atmospheric perspective, and continued painting with individualized instruction.
Module 4: Full studio day to finish painting with individualized instruction, Q&A and critiques.

PLEASE NOTE, this is a four-part course that will be taught on four Saturdays in February: Saturday, February 8, 2020, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.; Saturday, February 15, 2020, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.; Saturday, February 22, 2020, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.; and Saturday, February 29, 2020, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The cost of the four-part series is $140.00 per person. All skill levels are welcome and all materials will be provided (or students can bring their own). Preregistration is required.

About Our Teaching Artist: An Oxnard native, Gabriel Islas has returned to the Ventura County art scene after obtaining his BFA with an emphasis in painting from Academy of Art University, San Francisco.
