Eric’s “Know More About Your Materials” Day

November 20th 9:30 to 4:30

The master oil painter is one who knows their materials as keenly as the techniques they use to create a work of art. Understanding good painting practices is actually simple, rewarding and practical for your job as an oil painter!! Throughout the day we will cover everything you need to know about oil painting materials, paints, oils/ mediums, surfaces, etc. Bring your notebooks and have your questions ready! Please sign up as soon as possible due to limited space. ARA Boston main program painters will have priority for spots.
