Instructed by Mara Levin

Oil paint sticks are fun and easy for beginning artists, but are also a favorite tool of modern professionals including Dayna Collins and the late great Jean-Michel Basquiat. Come explore this exciting medium, in a supportive environment that encourages creativity, under the guidance of Mara Levin, BFA. In this 6-week class, we will discuss fine abstract and representational works by professionals, review painting surface options and learn simple ways to make your own, discover a variety of painting techniques and create a series of small paintings in a style of your choice. Please bring to the first class: $60 materials fee (for an introductory set of R&F Pigment half-sticks and 8 archival painting supports), 16”x 20” or larger drawing board, triangular palette knife, disposable gloves, and a painting rag or paper towels. Mara Levin is an award-winning fine artist, art educator, and graphic designer (www.MaraLevin.com). She teaches drawing and painting at schools and in her “Art Studio at the Farm” in Bolton.
