    Teaching artist: Jim Bongartz

    Recommended for ages 14 - adult. You can easily learn the basics while using acrylic paints! Students will complete a paint-along study the first 3 weeks with the instructor. Afterwards, bring your laptops to paint from your own uploaded photographs or images captured off the Internet. Of course, printed images are suitable for use as source material too. Students will explore traditional blocking-in methods while developing subject matter using expressive color, contrast and brushwork. After observing demonstrations, students will start off creating studies to learn basic techniques in color mixing and applications for building volume and space. The instructor will offer critiques to assist with constructive problem solving while exercising our vocabulary for the painting process. Supplies are provided by the student and a list will be sent one week prior to the start of class. The bulk of the investment of supplies will include paints, a few brushes, a canvas (first canvas provided). Level: Beginner thru Intermediate. In observance of the Thanksgiving holiday, there will be no class on November 21. Here is a link for details regarding AOY Terms & Conditions.

    This class is also offered for adults only Wednesdays, 1 - 3:30 pm.

    Teaching Artist: Dorothy Hoeschen

    Alla Prima means "at first attempt" and is sometimes called wet-in-wet (though it's not exactly the same). It is an exciting way of working that goes quickly, with the goal of being able to finish the painting in one sitting. This is one reason it is so perfect if you want to work "en plein air" (outdoors). Light and weather can change quickly and if you are painting outdoors it is definitely an advantage if you can finish a painting in 2-3 hours. This class will be a great primer for any upcoming plein air classes you may want to take. We will be working in a studio situation (a controlled environment) using your own reference images and enjoying the freshness and spontaneity that is always part of Alla Prima painting. Some basic knowledge of painting and color is a plus and a supply list will be provided. This class is not suited for beginners or first time painters. In observance of the Thanksgiving holiday, there will be no class on November 22. Here is a link for details regarding AOY Terms & Conditions.
