For many centuries, artists are in the centre of adoration and fortune because of their brushes and colours, which either highly depicted the real world with fine details or abstractly captured light, shadow and emotions thus touched our souls. Being thrilled in front of the famous artworks, do you ever want to express yourself in the same way? In this class, we will teach you all the oil painting knowledge and techniques. You can start with mimicking masterpieces of Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, Henri Matisse, Giorgio Morandi, etc. Or you can consult our teacher to develop your own style from the very beginning.
