Hosted by the Tubac Art Academy and Instructed by artist Leslie Miller, this beginners’ oil painting workshop will take place in beautiful Tubac, Arizona’s oldest settlement.
Since this is a beginners class, and oil painting supplies are not cheap. I felt like having the materials on hand for you would be a nice way to see what you love before investing in colors that may not suit you. The approximate cost to purchase everything on the list is $250.00
I can provide these materials, for your use in the workshop, the optional, additional fee is $30..
I would ask that you provide your own roll or rolls of viva paper towels, torn from the pick a size roll, then cut into thirds or half. I use half to ¾ of a roll per painting and I cut mine in thirds. I am a messy painter. That said purchasing 1-2 rolls should be sufficient.
