Guide to Non-Toxic Methods of Oil Painting

Oil paint is a medium that can sometimes be intimidating to work with because of its inherent toxicity. This class will introduce students to methods of working with oils in a non-toxic way. We will explore the use of water soluble oil paint as well as methods of working with traditional oil paint without the use of mineral spirits or turpentine. Say goodbye to your toxic worries and ventilation issues because this class is your ticket to a safer way to oil paint. 

Class will include:

Overview of different oil paint types, beginner palette colours, and mediums

How to prepare a painting surface

Techniques for water soluble oils

Techniques for traditional oil paints without the use of toxic paint thinners

Simple painting assignment that can be completed with either water soluble oils or traditional oils.
