Pre-College: Oil Painting: Portfolio Preparation

with Roger Chavez


Come explore the vibrant possibilities of oil painting through PAFA’s time honored methods. In this course learn materials and techniques including painting supports, brushes, historical and contemporary oil mediums, and their preparations. Discussions and demonstrations will include topics such as paint chemistry, color mixing of prismatic hues and earth tone colors as well as the additive and subtractive color systems. Painting from a variety of subjects including the still life, the cityscape, and nude models will allow for a development and understanding of the two-dimensional visual language.

Students will have opportunity to paint nude models. $35 model fee included in course fee.

Please bring supplies from Materials List.

Pre-College programs will be in-person to safely support young artists. All participants are required to be vaccinated and boosted (if eligible). We're excited to be a space of creative expression for teens!
