HCC offers oil painting classes

Housatonic Community College in July is offering an Oil Painting for Beginners course.

This non-credit course is designed to introduce students to the art of painting through traditional and experimental approach. Through class projects, students will have the opportunity to practice observational painting skills and experiment with a variety of nontraditional media and innovative techniques.

This course’s goal is to enhance each student’s understanding of historical and contemporary painting trends through studio practice and classroom dialogue. Students will work from life, from found images, and from the imagination.

In addition to tuition, there is a $25 fee for studio art supplies and materials payable to the instructor the first day of class.

The course, being taught by instructor Peter Konsterlie, will be held Mondays and Thursdays, July 14 through Aug. 7, from 7 to 9 p.m. in Room B215. Tuition is $99.

The course is being offered again in the Fall. It will meet Mondays and Thursdays, Oct. 20 through Nov. 13, from 7 to 9 p.m., in Room A207 at the college. The instructor and tuition remain the same.
