Oil Painting Essentials

A Painting Workshop with Gregg Kreutz, greggkreutz.com

Friday-Sunday, October 21-12, 9 am-4 pm
Studios 1A and 1B
Crealdé Main Campus
Members $550, Non-members $570
#WKP56, Fall I Session

This three-day workshop presents the core essentials for effective oil painting. Learn the importance of accuracy in proportions; values and colors; using convincing dimensions to create depth; how design elements can ensure seamless transitions; and creating drama with intense visual excitement on the canvas. Because these essentials can best be understood through direct painting, students are encouraged to get all the principle elements on the canvas as soon as possible. Then explore how to create a quick-painted summation of the picture’s value range, color world, design and light drama.

Gregg Kreutz is an oil painter and playwright based in New York City. He teaches at the Art Students League, as well as at many art schools throughout the country and abroad. Kreutz is the author of “Problem Solving for Oil Painters” and wrote the newly released “Oil Painting Essentials.”
