The course is designed to introduce the basic elements of oil painting to students with little or no experience. Instruction will be given on preparation of materials and specific exercises will be assigned so that students have the opportunity to explore color, light, texture and composition. Demonstrations of different techniques will be given. The cost is $150 plus supplies.

Formally trained in the academic style of painting, Marsee received his bachelor's degree in Fine Art from the University of Science & Arts of Oklahoma in 1993. Mentored by painters Hollis Howard and Kent Lamar, Marsee is an award winning artist who specializes in painting portraits in oil.
