Water soluble oil paints are an awesome, safe way to learn oil painting, and this 4-week introductory class will give you the skills needed to create amazing works! Teaching Artist Lauren Kuhn will instruct students on how to work step-by-step to develop paintings using alla prima, a painting technique in which layers of wet oil paint are applied to previously administered layers of wet paint. Color mixing, ratios, composition, and painting surfaces will be covered as well.

After graduating from Villanova University, teaching artist Lauren Kuhn worked in education and graphic design before choosing to pursue the path of a full-time fine artist in 2013. Now living in Emmaus, Lauren serves as the vice president of the Emmaus Arts Commission, a group that focuses on developing art events and enhancing an appreciation of the arts in the community. For the majority of her work, Lauren specializes in creating custom, commissioned oil paintings that offer opportunities to capture a ‘moment’ in lieu of a basic likeness. In 2016, Lauren was named an Art Pop artist by Art Pop Street Gallery and The Banana Factory, and she was excited to represent emerging and professional artists from the state of Pennsylvania in the 2017 Art of the State Exhibit at The State Museum in Harrisburg. Lauren regularly shows her paintings in national juried shows, competes in Plein Air Festivals across Pennsylvania, and seeks opportunities to use her art to help those in her community. In Emmaus, you can see her custom mural work in person at Turn the Page (via a series of murals and a selection of paintings) and Lets Play Books (she painted the third floor stairwell).
