The focus of this class will be to represent portraits with solid dimension and skin tones in one sitting. Working from the live model, methods for how to quickly and efficiently represent the structure and shape of the human head will be examined. Varying palettes will be discussed with an emphasis on practical ways for mixing flesh tones. Paint handling, supports, and mediums will also be discussed.
The class is structured so that the student can continue to build on past lessons and experience with each new month without unnecessarily repeating steps. This allows the serious and dedicated student to keep forward momentum in their study while progressing at their own rate. Each pose lasts for one session and a different model will be used for each class.
The Alla Prima Portrait Painting class is $150 per month.
Note: If you’d like to drop in for an uninstructed session the price will be $25 per session. Please contact us to make sure there is a spot available.
