Ogdensburg, NY — The Frederic Remington Art Museum continues its series of adult art classes with an oil painting class on Thursday, February 28, from 10 am to noon. Local artist Julie Pratt will teach the foundation skills of painting with oil, with a focus on four main skills: shading, glazing, color mixing, and application of paint.

“Oil paint is an exciting medium, but it can be intimidating for those who have never been taught how to use it. Once you understand and become familiar with its unique properties you begin to see how versatile and truly amazing this medium really is,” says Pratt.

Pratt will introduce a series of exercises to create a better understanding of the oil paint medium, and the foundation skills that will help students to progress further in their painting. This class is excellent for those who have worked in oil paint and desire a fuller understanding of the medium or for those who have never used it before.

The class will be taught at the Eva Caten Remington Education Center, 323 Washington Street, Ogdensburg. All skill levels are welcome, and materials will be provided, though artists are welcome to bring their own materials if they prefer. The cost of the class is $15 for members of the Remington Museum and $25 for non-members. The class is limited to 12 participants. Call 315-393-2425 or email [email protected] to ask questions or sign up, or visit fredericremington.org to register online.
