Opus Curates – Adding Sparkle: Incorporating Gold Leaf Into Oil Painting
Jolene Mackie
Course: Tuesday 22, 29 March & April 5, 2022, 5:00pm

Join instructor Jolene Mackie for this three-session course, where you will learn both the fundamentals of oil painting and unique ways to incorporate gold leaf and other materials into your work to add an extra bit of sparkle. During this course, you will work on two paintings side by side, which will allow you to play with different colour combinations and paint application techniques. By adding gold leaf elements to your work, you create art that captures and reflects light in a special, eye-catching way. While this course will be a wonderful addition to the skill set of any artist, we also welcome beginners as we will take you through the basics of working with oil paint.


All skill levels are welcome.

Registrants can purchase materials for this class for a discounted fee at Opus Art Supplies. Materials will cost around $50.
