THE STUDIO

PROFESSIONAL ARTIST VICKI WALSH opens her private San Marcos studio to students of all levels, to form a community interested in building knowledge and skill in the core fundamentals of painting, while engaging in meaningful conversation about the focus and purpose of art and artists and what drives us towards creativity and expression.

Working with color and paint is not a talent born into only a select few; it is a skill that can be taught and learned.

You will build a thorough understanding of color vs. value, and learn her systematic approach to palette creation, which is the key to any great painting. This process will allow you to use oil paint with certainty and conviction, every time, whether painting from life or from any reference material. With this new-found knowledge, you will be free to be creative in all aspects of your painting practice. Working together, we can take the mystery out of oil painting and help create consistency in your work.

AFTER YOU SIGN UP FOR YOUR CLASS

YOU WILL BE SENT A MATERIALS LIST

If you are new to painting, wait for the first class before buying any supplies. If you already own paints, etc. we will go over what you have, what is good and what additional or different supplies would be useful. If this is your first class at SIP, please plan to arrive 1 hour early on your first day for a quick orientation and so that you have time to get settled.

Private instruction is also available, at $50 per hour
