Alla Prima Oil Painting Workshop
Wet-on-wet, or alla prima (Italian, meaning at first attempt) painting is a technique in which layers of wet paint are applied to previous layers of wet paint. Also called direct painting, this approach can result in fresh, vibrant works completed in one session – but it takes practice manipulating paint with intention. NOTE: This is not a beginner painting class. Prior painting knowledge, including brush work and color mixing is required. Bring an image to work from, an apron or paint clothes, and a bag or box to take your wet painting home. A canvas and all other supplies (brushes, tools and oil paint colors) will be provided.
Open to ages 18+
Saturday October 5, noon to 4pm
