Oil Painting with Jean Cormier

Still Life Oil Painting

Session 1

Class Dates: Tuesdays July 16, 23, 30 and Aug 6, 2024

Class Time: 6 - 8pm

Class Cost: $100

Class Size: maximum 8 students

This class is designed for both beginner and intermediate students.

In this class we will work on how to draw your image directly on a canvas without tracing. The instructor will provide a canvas prepped
with a toned wash. After the image is drawn, we will begin by blocking in various areas.

We will discuss how VALUES (dark/light) influence the successful outcome of your painting. We will use a variety of brushes and different mediums to achieve the desired results.

To better understand color mixing and theories and values the students will work with a limited palette of four colors plus white. Occasionally
an additional color may be introduced by the instructor.

Students will learn how to evaluate their own paintings as they move through the painting process and how to correct errors.

Students Will Need to Bring:


  1. One roll of paper towels

  2. One soft light colored or white rag

  3. Two clean baby food size glass jars with lids (if possible)

  4. Handful of Q-Tips

  5. Two pieces of stiff cardboard           9” x 12”
