Painting and Drawing

Perhaps one of the first things that comes to mind when thinking of “fine art” is painting and drawing, but this art form is far from basic. From acrylics to pastel chalks, we offer an array of mediums to choose from, each presenting their own unique set of challenges. Whether you’re interested in still life or more abstract expression, with our workshops anyone can learn to unlock their inner artist and start to see the world in a new light.

Tools Available
  • Acrylic paint and other open use materials are available for UO students only. 
  • Some canvases and paper
  • Easels
  • Drawing boards
  • Various paint brushes
  • Cups for water
  • Larger canvases are not available outside of workshops.
