Oil Painting: Harps Alla Prima with Matt Kania
Local artist Matt Kania teaches an alla prima painting class with a live model playing the harp. The class runs on three consecutive Tuesdays from Feb. 11 through Feb. 25. The first class features the live model while the class focuses on capturing the shapes and movements through oil sketches and photographs. In the remaining two sessions the class will work from the oil sketches and photographs to complete a large oil painting. Painting alla prima is an Italian term which means “at first” and is also known as “direct painting” or “wet on wet” oil painting. Using this technique, painters will complete a painting without waiting for the paint layers to dry completely, focusing on shapes, color value, paint applications and brush strokes.
The class is $125 for DAI members and $150 for nonmembers. Visit https://duluthartinstitute.org/event-3622339 to register and to see the materials list.
