Oil Painting with John McNulty: Concept to Completion

This Flexible class is customized each week to match the needs and experience of the students.

John gives a brief lesson or demonstration at the beginning of class, and then addresses each student’s individual painting issues. Topics covered can include composition, brush technique, color theory, perspective, the human figure, plein air painting, etc. Students interests and needs guide the discussion, so bring your questions !

Instruction is primarily for oil painters, but acrylics and other mediums are welcome; the fundamental art principles are the same. Some drawing skill is recommended. Students must provide their own subject matter; your own sketches or photos are encouraged. Each student works at his/her own pace and receives instruction as needed. More advanced artists can use this time as a “Master’s Class” to finish paintings or take advantage of John’s constructive critique and suggestions.

Class fee is $150 for HAAA members and $160 for non members.

Please bring your own supplies unless otherwise indicated.
