Alla Prima oil painting is an “all at once” style where traditionally the artist completes a painting in one sitting, which is our goal for each 3-hour class in this 5-class series. It sounds intimidating but it’s not. Alla Prima is an accessible and enjoyable oil painting method that benefits students by encouraging fast work while they absorb the fundamentals of painting: color mixing, composition and value, handling of brushes and other materials. Working fast helps students loosen up and get into the flow of painting.
Prior to class we will email a course synopsis and a supply list (if you plan to bring your own supplies). We will work from reference photos as well as still life arrangements. If you don’t have your own supplies then you may use ours for an additional $25 materials fee payable the first day of class. It’s a great option for students who would like to test the waters before investing in oils, brushes, canvases and all the other start-up costs.
When you are finished with class each week, you are welcome to stay for awhile to enjoy the beautiful Art Farm habitat, stay for a cup of coffee or tea, find inspiration by thumbing through books in our large art library, continue working on a painting, or perhaps even get really into it and try sketching some of our animals. Bring a coat because winters can be chilly down in our valley!
