About the Event

Join the Pike Road Arts Council for the Glazing with Oil Paints Workshop with Charles Payne at the Pike Road Arts Center (944 Wallahatchie Rd)! On March 30 and April 6, Charles will lead beginners through the traditional technique of glazing, from start to finish.

Glazing is used to increase the depth and intensify colors in a painting, taking your art to the next level. Glazing with oil was around before the Renaissance, but it was not used for fine art. After Jan Van Eyck and Leonardo Da Vinci, glazing with oil paints became a common tool for painters. Together, participants will uncover these old techniques and how to use them effectively! Beginners are welcomed and encouraged to develop their skills at this introductory course.

On March 30, from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m., participants will create a grisaille. A grisaille is a painting executed entirely in shades of grey or another neutral color. March 30’s class will focus on creating the illusion of form through light and shade, forming the basis for the glazing in week two.

A week later, on April 6, artists will reconvene from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. to glaze color onto the grisaille, bringing it to life. April 6’s class will emphasize creating the illusion of form through light and shade.

There are registration fees associated with this workshop. The registration fee for this event is $120 and includes the cost of all materials. There are very limited seats for this workshop! Email patty@pikeroad.us to register today.
