Athens Arts class aimed at beginning oil painters


If you are curious about oil painting, but believe that compared to other mediums it’s perhaps more complex and a bit harder to use, don’t let that initial perspective keep you from giving oils a try.

In the next Art on Thursday class set for March 9 participants will learn to paint with vibrant colors and will see that the slower drying time of oils can be an advantage. Paints and mediums will be safe and non-toxic.

This class will introduce the basics of oil painting and give novice artists the confidence to continue painting with oils.

The instructor will provide all supplies needed for students to create an oil painting to take home. Class will be March 9. Choose either an afternoon session (1-3 p.m.) or an evening session (6-8 p.m.). Class is open to anyone 12 years and older. Cost is $35.

Classes meet at Athens Arts, 216 E. Main St.
