CHESTERTON | Mark VanderVinne will be offering a "How to Paint with Oils" workshop from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, with a break for lunch.

This two-day workshop will cover the basics of oil painting, including best practices of set up and materials, mediums, direct painting techniques, mixing colors and an introduction to the fundamentals of art — drawing, value, color and edges. The students will do exercises and small paintings to familiarize themselves with oils by working with simple shapes from life and photos.

"By the end of the class, I want the students to walk away with a more confident understanding of the medium, it’s benefits and versatility, and experience the fun and joy of painting with oils," VanderVinne said. 

The cost of the workshop is $120 for members and $145 for nonmembers. A supply list will be provided to everyone who registers. Space is limited. To sign-up, contact the Chesterton Art Center at (219) 926-4711. The Chesterton Art Center is at 115 S. 4th St.
