Painting From Life - The Alla Prima Approach My teaching approach guides beginners as well as the experienced artist through the process of painting from life. An emphasis is placed on the need to create preliminary sketches as the foundation for stronger paintings. Each intensive program is designed to strengthen skills of perception as well as mastery of the medium and will help to make order out of chaos by stressing the basics of drawing, value, and color. You__™ll learn to see in terms of mass and form rather than detail and line and develop the skills necessary to translate light into the language of paint. Each workshop will focus on: ___ Overcoming the fear of painting outdoors ___ Understanding and simplifying shapes ___ Laying down a foundation quickly and confidently ___ Creating focal points and developing them ___ Balancing cool and warm colors ___ Creating atmospheric perspective ___ Composition and balance ___ Developing an individual's ability
