Alla prima means “at first attempt.” The expression is used mainly in oil painting and involves finishing a picture while the paint is still wet. It is suited to subjects that need to be painted quickly, such as a perishable still life. Participants will have the opportunity to focus on the fundamentals of oil painting. Strong emphasis will be placed on seeing basic abstract shapes, understanding values, and observation of the play of light on the subject and composition. Students may work in the medium of their choice. There will also be discussion on methods for setting up reference materials and lighting. Maximum of 8 students.
