About this Outdoor Alla Prima Workshop
This course launches artists into the adventures of painting out of doors “en plein air” by teaching the techniques of alla prima painting with spring colors. "Alla prima" refers to a direct painting approach where paint is applied wet on wet without letting earlier layers dry. In Italian, the term means "at first attempt".

Workshop locations will be at three different sites located in the eastern suburbs of Monroe County as well as Wayne and Ontario Counties.
(Western New York State near the shores of Lake Ontario and Rochester, NY).

Demonstrations will be done using oil pigment. However, one-on-one instruction may include other painting mediums.
