Alla Prima Approach: The Portrait In Oil

Saturday, October 13, 2018 @ 9:30am - 12:30pm

Art Class at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden

Designed for advanced and seasoned artists, this intensive portrait workshop with instructor Carlos Gallostra from 9:30am to 12:30pm positions the participant to explore alla prima-a direct painting approach-aimed to capture an immediate likeness in a short amount of time.

The class continues for four Saturdays.

Students already versed in color mixing will test and advance their skills. Topics discussed will range from ideas on observation, measurement, and value as well as techniques meant to finalize the turn of form as well as the relationship of darkness and lights.

Fee: Member, $175; Non-member, $205
