Painting should be fun and an outlet for your creative energy, and you should feel safe to learn in an environment that is helpful and encouraging and NOT judgmental or stressful. This is the place for that! Angela will give you some ideas on how to get started in this versatile medium, helping you to feel more confident through the skills you will be practicing and the tools you’ll get to know.

What you can expect to learn:

  • what kinds of brushes make what kind of marks, and what brands to buy
  • helpful tools to aid you in getting your drawing, values, and colors right
  • where to begin and how to move forward without getting “stuck”
  • how to layer your paint without making mud

ARTspot has put together a Custom Angela Bandurka Supply Kit for Oils which includes:

OIL PAINT (included in kit) *

  • Titanium White
  • Cadmium Yellow Light
  • Quinacridone Rose
  • Ultramarine Blue
  • Burnt Umber

PALETTE (included in kit):

  • Strathmore 9x12 Palette Paper Pad (Yellow Cover) is Angela's preferred disposable paper palette. Although disposable paper palettes work, Angela recommends a permanent palette to keep the oil paints for longer, such as wood, plastic or glass. Whatever you get, the palette must be flat with no wells or indents.
