Painting alla Prima! Try something new that is centuries old! This fast-paced, “direct” painting method is a classic oil painting technique that coaxes the painter to be bold and decisive! Learn to apply layers of wet paint on canvas to quickly capture the essence of the subject matter- from landscape, still life and figure. The instructor supplies the subject matter and demonstrates step-by step as students follow along. Through demonstrations, in-class projects, individual critiques and group discussions, students will expand their creative abilities by trying this painting approach perfect for beginners and more advanced painters alike.
