Oil Painting at The Arts Students League with Simon Levenson

October 7 @ 8:45 am - 12:30 pm

Dear Drawing New York Member,

You are invited to study oil painting with me at The Art Students League. We will work together in a few ways we have not yet had the opportunity to in our drawing classes. REGISTER HERE

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.

This class includes a live figure model and a full skeleton present at each session. 

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.
