This two-day workshop is a hands-on course in alla prima painting.  Alla Prima is Italian for “at first attempt”, and is an apt description and a good goal for a class which will have a different long pose every day.  The class will begin with a painting demonstration by the instructor at the beginning of the day that lasts until lunch.  Students will then work individually from the live model for the rest of the session and receive individualized critiques throughout the day.  On the second day, students will dive into the beginning of a second portrait.  Examples will be brought into class for study and art materials will be covered a little.  Emphasis on light and dark, drawing, and navigating color will be introduced.  Students will need to bring 2 primed canvases or panels into class.
