Oil Painting I with Mia Bergeron

Dates: March 4, 2019 - March 25, 2019
Recurrence: Recurring weekly on Monday

Want to get your feet wet with oil painting, but feeling a bit intimidated? This class is designed to start your practice on the right foot from the beginning. Mia will go over materials, technique, drawing and finding proportions. Great for the total beginner who has never touched oils, the seasoned painter looking to refresh their knowledge of foundations, and anyone coming back to oils after a break. Students will paint from still life and cast replicas, focussing on working with just black and white oils. Materials list coming soon.

About the instructor:
Mia Bergeron’s interest in art was cultivated early on, beginning with continuous exposure to visual works through her parents’ graphic design firm in New York City. Mia has studied at the Rhode Island School of Design, and has studied and taught at the Charles H. Cecil Studio in Florence, Italy, a small private painting atelier primarily focused on the naturalistic tradition of such artists as Van Dyck, Velasquez, and John Singer Sargent. In May 2007, she was a national finalist for the American Artist Magazine Cover competition. In 2010, she was named one of the “Top 21 Artists Under 31 Years Old To Be Collected Now” by SouthWest Art Magazine. She has served as Adjunct Professor at UTC, a faculty member at the Art of the Portrait Conference in Atlanta, GA and a regular instructor at Townsend Atelier.
