Tall trees and early fall foliage on the Art Hill inspired Oil 309 students as they took their canvases and oil paints and painted en plein air, which is the French term for outdoor painting. Taught by Constance Kocs, this upper level class teaches a variety of techniques using oil paints and related tools. Students interested in oil painting can begin with Art 307, which is offered each semester.
