Oil Painting with Larry Reinhart

This is not a class for beginners, but if you have your basic skills down, Have explored other medias, want to expand on your experience with oils, get a new point of view and improve your personal style, then this is the class to take!

Once a week, we'll explore different steps and techniques that will help push your art to the next level. We meet in the class

room and critique your latest work, I'll give demonstrations and we'll paint together while I instruct in the things I do to help me grow as an artist and keep me at the top of my game. These are things I have been doing for the last 20 years that keep me inspired and progressing as an artist.

The class meets every Wednesday night, 6- 8:30pm at:

Vision Quest Studio

35136 Ave. A

Yucaipa, CA 92399

Class cost is only $20 per class.

Make sure and contact me to sign up prior to class.

Students will need to provide their own materials and should be able to bring their supplies to class. Basic Materials include:

  • Oil paints - Cadmium Red, Lemon Yellow, Cobalt Blue and White at the minimum.  I recommend the brands Daler Rowney Georgian (School Grade), Winsor Newton and Gamblin.

  • Brushes: Hog Hair filberts sizes 2 and 4.  Softer synthetic filbert brushes sizes 2 and 4 and a soft synthetic round size 2 or smaller.

  • Brush Cleaner and a jar to hold hit.  Recommend Gamblin Gamsol.

  • Something to mix the paints on - a cheep 8x10 picture frame with glass from the 99cent store works fine.

  • Something to paint on.  5x7 - 9x12 canvas panels, pad of oil paper, stretched canvases.  I'd recommend canvas panels if you are unsure what any of the above are. 


If I need a misc. supply I usually head over to the local Hobby Lobby store.  If I have time to purchase and wait a week or two for delivery I shop at Dick Blick.  There's a better selection, cheaper prices and generally if you spend $50 you'll get free shipping.


**Please note, Vision Quest has a policy that all students under the age of 18 need parent or guardian consent for the class and parents will need to be present or the first class so we can go over exactly what is required going forward for other classes.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.
