Alla Prima Portraits with the Zorn Palette – Dominique Medici

Tuesday| 5/19-6/9 | 1:30pm-5:00pm

Enroll Now

The most efficient way to develop your observation and intuition simultaneously is to practice Alla Prima painting. The ability to work quickly, and with precision, is key in your development as a painter. The time restraint forces you to forego detail, see the big picture, and focus on gesture and large masses, these elements hold the power and personality within a painting. Your instructor will provide frequent demos and break down the process of painting into clear and consecutive steps. You will receive critique and instruction each session. Since simplicity is one of the goals, you will be using a limited palette of 4 colors. Practicing this way over the course of the weekend will help to sharpen your observation, and take your skill to a new level.

Painting the Hand – Aron Hart

Thursday| 5/21-6/11 | 1:30pm-5:00pm

Enroll Now

Hands are one of the most difficult parts of the figure to paint, even more so when you consider all the emotion they can express. Building on the previous hand drawing class, we’ll move forward to painting the hand in oil, depicting all the subtly and nuance of the form. Beginning with large masses and planes, we’ll slowly develop into detail one of the most expressive parts of the human figure in oil paints.
