This unique workshop will cover every element of making a painting: from stretching, sizing and priming a canvas to making oil paint from scratch.

The first day of the workshop will cover:

  • Stretching a canvas
  • Making and applying size
  • Making paint from scratch
  • Painting on a ground
  • Working from a still life
  • Developing compositional ideas through drawing
  • Imprimatura
  • Applying oil paint to your canvas
  • Understanding different viscosities and drying times.

Using the still life as a motif, the second day will be spent working on your painting and exploring how these traditional techniques can be used from a contemporary perspective.

By learning these traditional techniques and how to make everything by hand, students on this workshop have the opportunity to gain a deeper relationship to the materials used.
