Sydney Art Classes – We use oil paint

Oil painting is very much a traditional, however ever so versatile, painting medium.  Painting in oils is the preferred painting medium for portraiture painting as well as landscape painting, as it allows the artist to work and re-work; continuously blending the oil colours to the desired effect.   Oil Paints have a longer curing period than Acrylic Paints & mediums.

Samuel Wade Self portrait in oils

The Julian Ashton Art School teaches the basics of the handling of oil paint in monochrome leading to the use of limited palettes and the qualities of colours. This leads from still life to the figure and portraiture; painting directly from life, as well as oil painting classes for landscape & seascape.

Our teachers enjoy teaching each student the fundamental techniques of oil painting to ensure the student can apply this universal painting medium to any choice of artistic endeavor.
