The medium of oil painting has a venerable and distinguished history of many centuries, and is still a popular medium among painters today. It is a rich medium known for its versatility, but a beginner may be intimidated to approach the medium.

At our studio, we provide professional oil painting classes. You will be taught materials knowledge and painting techniques through an academy-school approach, with the guidance of our teacher, who is a professionally trained artist. You will be taught observation, form and composition, colour mixing and blending, brushwork and a variety of oil painting techniques when you embark on your Oil Painting course journey with us.

Who Should Learn Oil Painting & What to Look Out For 

Any adult or teenager with or without prior experience in any form of art can learn Oil Painting! Our Studio classes provide art instruction and guidance from a foundational level. This is to bridge any previous knowledge, and to give complete beginners a hands-down manual of the basics and step-by-step approach to Oil Painting.

Structured? Yes, it may seem that this academy-school approach may be structured for some, and therefore restrict the freedom of expression. However, at our studio, we teach you to acquire a good art foundation in whichever medium you choose to learn, and it is the skills and techniques that will equip you to explore your individual expressions and achieve your artistic goals – be it Abstract, Realism, Architectural Paintings, Landscape Paintings, or complexed Portrait or Figure Paintings!

TIP: We teach you to observe from actual subjects and this is an important training and foundation that anyone who wants to learn painting would need to do!

Oil Painting Class Outline:

Beginner Oil Painting class will involve 24-36 classes and within these sessions, you will be able to learn 1) Basic theory of oil painting, familiarise yourself with the use of oil painting tools, understand the history and development of oil painting, oil painting techniques and brief introduction to various brushworks. In the beginner’s class, students will complete painting a combination of flowers (sunflower, trumpetflowers, lavender and yellow roses) with fruits or ceramic bowls or earthen jars with beige fabric as a background. Through these few oil paintings, you will learn about the correct proportions and perspectives of the still life placed in front of you and also apply the correct colour for both the subjects and the surrounding colour around the still life settings.
