Mid-level to Advanced Fine Art Professional Oil Painting 

Join us at the Arboretum to take the fine art of oil painting to the next level. For those who have painted in the past and wish to take their painting to the next level, please join us to explore new skill building exercises, watch demos, and develop your individual artistic expression while completing 3-5 paintings.  The oil paints are professionally formulated and imported.  They are water-soluble; giving off no harmful fumes, are safer and clean-up is easier.  Students may use fusion painting which is a process of using acrylic (which dries in 15 minutes) to paint the background and overlaying oil on top (which dries in 4-6 days).  The student will be using professional canvases and special brushes.

-All materials are provided, including Acrylic and Oil H20 (non-toxic and water soluble)

-Instructed and coached by Ron Pettie.
