Description: During this 2-day per week class, we will focus on your growth as a painter. Students should come to class with some idea of what they want to work on whether it be technique, subject matter, or both. In each class, students will have the opportunity to either work on personal projects or exercises provided by the instructor. Guidance and suggested projects will be catered to the needs and interests of each student. We will have frequent group critiques and the instructor will be rotating around the room to provide guidance as needed. Acrylic or oil painters are welcome. Some previous painting experience is required. 

Prerequisite: Beginning Painting or equivalent

When you register, please put in the comments if you want a seated or standing spot.


Since this is a partially self-directed class, materials are subjective. Get what you need! The following are suggested materials:


Oil Paint: You can decide the brand per your budget, student or professional grade, but you don’t want to go too cheap or it will hinder your progress. I recommend Gamblin 1980 for a good student grade paint at a good price point.

  • cadmium yellow light or lemon yellow 37ml
  • yellow ochre 37ml
  • Quinacridone Red 37ml
  • ultramarine blue 37 ml
  • cerulean blue hue 37 ml
  • burnt sienna 37ml
  • raw umber 37ml
  • titanium white 150 ml


Paint Brushes

  • Filbert or Bright: #’s 2, 4, 8, 12


Pre-stretched Canvas or panels

Surfaces are a matter of preference and you may want to try a few things out as the course moves forward. From stretched canvas to various ridged painting boards, there are many options. I recommend American Easel Gessoed Wood Painting Panels 7/8th in thick, but you can try any, or go to the hardware store and make your own. Just make sure they come to class primed or gessoed and ready to go! The following are recommended sizes:

  • 3x 9inx12in
  • 2x 12x16in
  • 1x 16x20in



  • Refined Linseed Oil –small bottle/8oz (painting medium)
  • Gamsol, terpenoid, or other odorless oil painting solvent (at least 16oz)


Other Supplies

  • 2 small plastic squeeze bottles for solvent and medium
  • Palette knife (I like the flat design, but the trowel shape is fine too)
  • Palette Options (any of the following 11” x 14” or larger):
    • disposable paper palette pad
    • mirror
    • wooden palette
  • Silicoil or other brush cleaning jar (a regular jar with lid will work, but something with a place to wipe brushes is preferable)
  • latex gloves
  • cotton rags, old t-shirts, or heavy duty paper towels
  • Canvas pad (approx. 9x12in) or a few cheap canvas boards for quick painting exercises
  • sketchbook with blank pages (at least 8.5” x 11”)
  • Drawing Pencils (and any other drawing materials preferred)
  • Scissors
  • Masking tape
  • Box to carry everything
