According to teacher Karen Gale, the instruction is designed to take students from “where they are to the next level.” She added, “Participants will learn the elements of art and design, classic painting techniques, and color theory through the process of creating their own paintings.”

Students who already work with oils are asked to bring their own supplies. A complete list will be provided at registration. Students new to oil painting can be provided materials for an additional $20.

The class may evolve into a weekly drop-in oil painting group.

Gale has been teaching art for eight years and is experienced to both beginning and experienced artists.

She studied in the Department of Art and Design at Southern Utah University. Since moving to the Pacific Northwest, she created the Pike Road Painters artist group in Yamhill, joined Currents Gallery in McMinnville as an artist and teacher, and founded Pease House Art in Oregon City. She lives in Bay City, teaches art, paints, and is illustrating a children’s book.
