Oil Painting at The Arts Students League with Simon Levenson
October 7 @ 8:45 am - 12:30 pm
Dear Drawing New York Member,
Students will learn how to mix and use color, understand oil paint as a medium, paint from a live model and as always, continue to improve their drawing skills!
Do not be intimidated if you have never used oil paint before; this is the place to learn.
Materials can be purchased at The Art Students League Store and each student will get a locker to leave their materials and paintings on site.
Please let me know if you have any questions that I might be able to help you with.
You can register here. Or by calling 212-247-4510.
