    Don’t miss your opportunity to work with the exceptional painter and instructor, Teresa Oaxaca!

    Alla prima is Italian for "at first attempt," an apt description and a good goal for a class that has a different long pose each day.

    The first day of class begins with a painting demonstration by the instructor, followed by students working individually from the live model and receiving constructive critiques.

    Through this workshop students will create three separate paintings.

    The course includes a materials lecture and examples for study. Topics of discussion include creating emphasis with edges and contrast, light and dark, drawing, and navigating color and texture.

    Please sign up early; class size is limited.

    Join artist Albert Handell for a 2-hour informative "start to finish" demonstration of his process and unique style followed by a critique of each participant's work.

    You will see and learn what to select and emphasize and what to play down or even take out of your paintings in order to make a strong design statement and ultimately how to begin and how to resolve (finish) an oil painting.

    He will also cover glazing and unique Handell color theory showing clearly how to visually blend by painting with different colors of a similar value.

    The demo will be followed by a critique session focussing on individual works by each participant.

    Please bring 2 works for critique, preferably oil paintings (completely dry and unframed).

    Please sign up early; enrollment is limited.

    This 5-day class will expand your visual language of mark making, and introduce you to new ways of using pan and stick pastels with mixed media on various surfaces.

    The class is based on Emerson's book, Pastel Innovations, which explains methods of incorporating pastel over monotypes, trace monotypes, brayer drawing, and much more.

    Since the book was published Dawn has explored other materials and approaches that inspire even more ways to create fresh and spontaneous work.

    All levels welcome.

    Please sign up early, enrollment is limited.
