Introduction to Oil Painting for Beginners


Date & Time:  10:00 AM – 5:00 PM, with a lunch break

Lunch:  A vegetarian lunch will be provided for all participants.

Number of Participants:  Max. 8ppl


Join us for a one-day immersive workshop designed to introduce beginners to the beautiful world of oil painting. This workshop focuses on still life and offers participants the opportunity to learn essential painting techniques, color theory, and composition, while also encouraging personal creativity in arranging and painting a still life setup.

We encourage creativity in setting up your still life (not more than 3 items). Choose from studio-provided items like drinkware and fruits, or bring your own items with regular shapes for a personal touch. Learn how to arrange these items in a compelling way, considering light and shadow to enhance the three-dimensionality of your painting.

Step-by-step guidance through the painting process, from sketching your composition to applying the final touches. Whether you’re working from a photo or a live setup, you’ll receive personalized feedback and tips to improve your technique and artistic expression.


Learning Points:


  • Fundamentals of Oil Painting: Overview of essential tools and materials, including types of brushes, paints, and canvases. Understanding the roles these tools play in the painting process.
  • Color Mixing and Theory: Basics of mixing colors to create a broad spectrum and applying color theory to enhance the composition’s emotional and visual impact.
  • Composition and Perspective: Principles of arranging a visually appealing composition and employing perspective techniques to add depth and realism to your artwork.
  • Techniques for Realistic Textures: Introduction to techniques like layering, glazing, and impasto to achieve various textures and finishes.


Workshop Painting Process:


10:00-10:30  Introduction and Setup: Briefing on the day’s objectives, distribution of materials, and setup of personal painting stations.

10:30-11:30  Sketching and Composition: Participants will learn how to sketch their chosen still life composition, focusing on proportion, balance, and the placement of objects to create an engaging visual narrative.

11:30-12:00  Color Mixing Practice: Hands-on practice in mixing oil paints to achieve desired colors and understanding the use of a color palette for consistency in shading and tonality.

12:00-13:00  Painting Techniques Demonstration: Demonstrations of different oil painting techniques, including brushwork for different textures, blending for smooth transitions, and layering for depth. Apply the first layer of painting and leave it dry during the lunch break.
13:00-13:45  Lunch Break: A relaxing break with a provided vegetarian lunch, offering a chance to socialize and discuss progress with fellow participants.
13:45-16:30  Personal Painting Time: Participants will apply what they’ve learned to their own compositions, whether painting from a provided picture or their arranged still life set. Our artist will provide personalized guidance and feedback throughout this process.
16:30-17:00  Finishing Touches and Review: Adding final details to the paintings, followed by a group review session where participants can share their work, receive feedback, and discuss their experience and learnings.


This workshop is designed to not only teach the technical aspects of oil painting but also to inspire creativity and personal expression.
