Join instructor, Glenn Sheets, to explore a variety of techniques, tools, and materials needed to approach landscape in the media of oil paint. Students will learn paint mixing, application with brush and knife, wet on wet and dry brush techniques. 
Bring a photo from a vacation or a photo of a place that means something special to you.. and paint it!

Glenn says, "Mostly what I hope you learn, is to have fun – so much that you want to do it again!"
