Oil Painting Curious – The Basics

Are you toying with the idea of trying the oil painting medium? Dip your toes in the oil and learn what the basics of the oil painting medium are in this fully loaded presentation workshop. From what oil paint is to palette management, the oil painter’s tools, mediums, storage and clean up, these topics will be covered and more. There will be time for questions that you may have at the end of the presentation. This workshop will prepare you for Introduction to Oil Painting: Unleashing Colors and Creativity, an eight-week class that begins on September 22, or help you decide whether you want to sign up.

When you register for a class, you’ll be offered three price tiers. The middle tier comes closest to what our registration fees used to be, and covers about 50% of the full cost of your participation in the class – with the other 50% covered by community donations. The first tier creates accessibility for people with limited income, while the third tier covers the full cost of participation – so that we can use community donations to support other people’s registration costs. When you choose to register at the third tier, you directly help support the Center’s efforts to remove financial barriers for others.

The Sonoma Community Center (the Center) strives to create an inclusive, safe community where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. The Center is committed to creating such an environment because it brings out the fullest potential in each of us, which, in turn, contributes directly to creating a community of belonging.
