Artist Jim Cobb, whose work is on display in The Depot Gallery through August 27, is offering an oil painting workshop on August 9 and 10, 2017, for beginning to intermediate students. Tuition is $120 for the two day workshop, which will meet from 9 am to 4 pm each day with a lunch break. Contact The Depot at 405-307-9320 for more details and to enroll.
Students should learn techniques and the “language” of various styles in oil painting. All subject matter will be discussed at length as well as applied to students painting experience during the classes. Still life, portrait, landscape and the human figure will be explored. “I plan to give as much individual attention as I can,” Cobb promises.
Dr. Cobb has taught privately, held class sessions for oil painters, and was an Adjunct Professor of Art at O.U. where he taught drawing, which he believes is the basis of good painting.
During his career as a painter, Cobb has had numerous one-man shows and group shows. He currently sells his work in the Reflection Gallery on Canyon Road in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He, and wife Dail, divide their time between homes in Norman and Taos, NM.
Programs at The Depot are made possible, in part, by grants from the Norman Arts Council and the Oklahoma Arts Council, as well as by generous individual donors.
