This class is designed for the high schooler interested in working “wet on wet”- aka alla prima- in oil paint from life. 

Alla prima painting is a technique where a painting is started and finished in one sitting, while the paint is still wet. We will complete one painting for each class. A special limited palette, called the Zorn palette, is used in this class because the five colors work well together and offer painters a manageable range of hues.  

Important to any artist, students will get experience writing about their artwork and process. Topics also discussed are photographing artwork, talking about others’ artwork, and presenting your work professionally.

Materials are provided! Artist-grade Gamblin oil paints, gamsol, linseed oil, brushes, and ampersand panels are provided in this course.
