Instructor: Amy Shawley Paquette
The Williamsburg Oils lecture is a two hour educational presentation that covers topics essential to oil painting. During this event, attendees will learn about sizes & grounds, using oil over acrylics, pigment grind, color properties, oil mediums, varnishing, solvent-free painting practices, and health & safety! You will also get the opportunity to do several short hands-on exercises that feature some of our favorite ways to work with Williamsburg colors.
Each attendee will receive a color chart, product literature, and a small box of oil paint samples to take home.
