You’ll be introduced on observation skills, form and composition and the first 15-20 minutes is for your self-exploration with the given observation, so the teacher and teaching assistants are able to access if you have any previous background/practise and bridge any differences, as well as so that you can see how you think and do! Our teacher will then guide you from there on, on how to approach the subject(s), methods of observation, determining form and composition, basic sketching and methods of modifying shapes/form, as a good draft sketch is important before the oil painting, and finally start to apply oils to your canvas and pick up basic brush techniques and colour blending skills, while starting to paint wet-on-wet! Guidance is provided to every individual through a step-by-step approach, and it’s important to paint and adopt a “JUST DO IT” attitude, as some beginners may always hesitate in fear of making any mistakes! Rest-assured, our instructor’s guidance will show you how to paint and what to look out for, and only when you paint, our instructor is able to give you tips and advice on what you can improve on!

As every individual’s pace of learning may be different, but we do our best to cater to your learning speed and preferences, and do note that this is only a Trial class, more will be covered with the 12 sessions Oil Painting / 24  sessions Oil Painting at Visual Arts Centre. We’ll recommend that you choose a course tailored to your objectives and time commitment to learning one or more mediums.

Oil Painting at Visual Arts Centre is for everyone! Adult and teenagers who have no former art training or experience in sketching/painting may start on this medium. Oil Painting is often compared with Acrylic Painting as both mediums are painted on canvas and look similar once dried. The former – Oil Painting – is a versatile medium consisting of pigments in oil suspension, while the latter – Acrylic Painting – is a water-based, fast drying medium which has a plastic-like texture once dried. Oils as a medium is often mistaken and misunderstood as an extremely difficult and intimidating medium, while Acrylic Painting is preferred for beginners. However, this is a myth! For any learners who would like to learn painting, Oils may offer you so much more due to the versatile nature of the medium that offers plenty of variations in styles, brushstrokes, techniques that can be applied with Oil painting!
