Oil Painting 油画


The medium of oil painting has a venerable and distinguished history for many centuries, and is still a popular medium among painters today. It is a rich medium known for its versatility, but it has its own peculiarities that often stump a beginner-painter. However, under the guidance of our teacher, who is a professionally trained artist, a student can experience the beauty and richness of oil paint in a comfortable learning environment.

Painting is a skill that can cultivate patience and endurance in it’s practitioner. Is is able to gift an individual with a sense of calm and relief while they paint. Painting is a therapeutic hobby, taught at the Visual Arts Center in an easy and relaxing setting, so that students may learn the techniques and methods of oil painting in a quick and enjoyable manner.  Students will be taught to observe and paint from still-life compositions and landscapes to learn the basics of oil painting, completing a new work of art every 2 or 3 sessions. Once the technique and skills have been fully understood, students are encouraged to paint their own images, may it be a portrait, landscape, abstraction or whatever else they may chose. By the end of the course, students can independently compose their own painting, and bring home a new masterpiece every two weeks!

This  is a course designed to individually teach each student based on their own understanding of art. So whether you’re a beginner looking to learn a new skill, or a painter looking to revive an old hobby, here at the Visual Arts Centre, we believe it is never too late to cultivate your passion.
