Oil/Acrylic Painting

with Dennis Poirier


Class has begun
Under Dennis’ guidance you will learn the basics of oil or acrylic painting: color values, brush pressure and control, setting up the palette and mixing color temperature and hue. Using reference in the form of good paintings and some photos to copy from, you will learn various techniques, design and good picture-making ideas and concepts. You may bring your own reference photos and the class will discuss the design and composition in each of them and determine if they will make a good painting. This class is appropriate for all levels, beginner and experienced. Please request a materials list for either oils or acrylics at registration. You may purchase canvases directly from Dennis in class. Instructor: Dennis Poirier studied at the Butera School of Art in Boston, Gloucester Academy of Fine Arts and the New York City’s Arts Student League.
