Portrait Painting - Class
February 21, 2011 - April 4, 2011

The Art of the Portrait- Painting the portrait in oil- This six week class by Brian Keeler will introduce the students to the art of painting the head in a single sitting. This process is referred to as "Alla Prima" which is the Italian term given to the one-sitting portrait. The term alla prima literally means, (at the first) and the French equivalent term "Premier Coup" is also used, but the later has a more aggressive connotation and suggests the martial aspect of painting. This class is for those new to painting but equally well suited for the seasoned artists. The fee is $350 for the six week course, which will meet every Monday evening at 6:30, beginning Feb 21. We will work from live models. Artists must have easels, and all of art supplies. A list of requisites will be given upon registration.
