Oil Paint Workshop: History, Materials, and Best Practices

Led by Sarah Sands, Senior Technical Specialist for both GOLDEN Acrylics and Williamsburg Handmade Oils and Phillip Garrett, GOLDEN Working Artist, this two-hour intensive investigates what goes into the making of oil paint, and how these things inform best practices and shape the feel and look of the paint we use.  In the first hour a wide ranging discussion will include the nature of pigments and oils, as well as a look at the choices we have for sizes and grounds.  The second hour will allow for hands-on exploration of the different qualities an oil paint can have.
