The Williamsburg Oils lecture is a two hour free educational presentation that covers topics essential to oil painting. During this event, attendees will learn about sizes & grounds, using oil over acrylics, pigment grind, color properties, oil mediums, varnishing, solvent-free painting practices, and health & safety! 

You will also get the opportunity to do several short hands-on exercises that explore the palette of paint textures due to variations in pigment grind and how pigment load can affect opacity, transparency, brilliance or muting of color. Compare the range of blacks and highlight useful neutrals and finish with a simple way to do a solvent-free clean-up. Each attendee will receive a color chart, product literature, and a small box of oil paint samples to take home.
