THURSDAY

Thursday 9 AM – 12 PM

Amanda Theis- Oil Painting "En Grisaille"

Class Description: Historically, artists were trained to draw first, then paint in black and white (known as “grisaille”) and then with a full color palette. Learning how to paint in black and white is a critical skill to transition students from the world of drawing to the world of painting. In this workshop, participants will discover the major principles that control how light reveals form, and then paint a grisaille sphere in oil paint. Safety, cleanup, and classroom management when using oil paint will be covered in depth. Although this class is targeted at teaching high school level oil painting theory concepts, all K-12 art teachers interested in learning how to manage oil painting lessons in their classrooms are encouraged to attend.

Materials Provided: All supplies will be provided courtesy of The Da Vinci Initiative

Materials to Bring: Participants are encouraged to bring a sketchbook for note-taking. All other supplies will be provided courtesy of The Da Vinci Initiative.

Materials fee is included in class registration fee.
