Resin oil paint mediums and solvents will not be used in the studio.

Students will be taught basic information and skills including materials and equipment to start a safe and nontoxic studio practice. The instructor will demonstrate approaches and techniques related to painting without the use of solvents, resin mediums, and proper brush cleaning techniques and other knowledge and skills related to traditional oil painting free of solvents.

The students will paint a first oil painting simultaneously with the instructor over the first four weeks using a canvas surface; a second oil painting using a wood or ACM panel in the final four weeks.
