This free session is taught by Scott Gellatly, Product Manager for Gamblin Artists Colors. A painter himself, Scott consults with painters worldwide on technical issues and is involved in developing and testing all of Gamblin oil colors and mediums. Scott has given presentations on oil painting materials throughout the U.S., Canada and Australia.

If you would then like to put what you have learned into direct practice, we will be hosting a paint-out at the Sedona Arts Center campus from 1 - 4 pm Sunday following the presentation. Gamblin Oils is providing the paint and Gamsol for the session so you can explore the use of these materials. You will need to bring your own plein air easels, panels and brushes.
