A continuation of Sarah’s class for beginners in oil painting. Note: some experience with oils required for this intermediate class.
Her goal is to remove the hesitations that many beginning painters have about this beautiful and versatile medium.
About the instructor: I received my BFA in Studio Art at Texas State University in 1982. Later I received a Texas State teaching certificate in All – level art from the University of North Texas. I have been a practicing artist since I graduated from college. From 1986 to 1994 I created custom designed tile murals for homes and businesses. I am familiar with a variety of art media such as watercolors, oils, acrylics, clay, printmaking, and collage. I started teaching full – time in a public school in 1999. I developed many lesson plans which were tailored to the ages and learning levels of my students. I love teaching art to children and adults. I believe that art assists young people in making meaning from their lives. I also enjoy teaching them to see and recognize the beauty around them. As of now, I am a self – employed artist and part – time teacher. I have exhibited my collagraph prints and pottery in Texas and Colorado. I currently live in Fort Worth, Tx. — Sarah Murphy
