What you'll learn in this painting class:

 Alla Prima means “all at once” and is traditionally painted within one session while the paint is still wet. You will learn exactly how this can be accomplished through daily demonstrations and individual instruction.  Each daily session the instructor will focus on a specific feature of the face.  Flesh-tones, construction of the head, pose and lighting will be thoroughly discussed. Each Student who attends will emerge with a stronger understanding alla prima portraiture, visual problem-solving skills as they relate to working from observation, and a  better understanding of the craft of oil painting.
