About This Class
Welcome to Painting on Tiles class!
In this class I will show you how to make an oil painting on a ceramic tile.
You will learn how to prepare for a painting session like setting up your workspace, choosing art materials and preparing a palette. You will pick a subject to paint (it can be a portrait or a still life or anything that feels comfortable to paint).
You will also learn the basics of how to blend and mix colours, apply brushstrokes and get insight on a creative process.
This class is for everybody who wants and loves to paint. If you are a beginner it will be a great introduction to oil painting. If you have painted before this project will deepen your experience and I hope you will learn new techniques.
For this class you will need:
A small tile: about 6"x6" or 8"x10" that you can find at your local Home Depot or Tile store.
Oil paints. Any brand will work, start with 4-6 colours.
Brushes. Pick small, thin brushes
Palette. It can be a plastic, wood or glass palette
Napkin or rag
Photo reference or an object that you choose to paint

I am an artist / illustrator based in Toronto, Canada. I've been drawing and painting since I can remember myself. My work is mainly figurative as I'm fascinated by people and spaces. I primarily paint in oils on canvas and tiles. I also love to experiment with watercolours, ink and acrylics. And drawing for me is an everyday practice, can't go without it.
