Summer Workshop

Alla Prima: Oil Painting in One Session


Alla prima painting (also known as direct painting) is a technique in which layers of wet paint are applied to previously administered layers of wet paint. The paintings are generally completed in one session. In this workshop, you’ll be introduced to alla prima techniques and will finish a work on canvas before you
leave for the day!

No prior art training is required. All levels are welcome.

A materials fee of $20 will be due at the workshop session. That will cover all materials.

The instructor will have some resources for you, but feel free to bring an outline version and color version of something you really want to paint.
