New for 2022!


Animals Alla Prima!

October 28th and 29th, 2022


Manhasset, New York


Join Patty for a two-day workshop where you’ll learn how to paint your animal friend using the alla prima method of oil painting. Alla prima painting will help you paint faster and looser, which can fast-track your skills and help build confidence as a painter. We’ll start each day with a short demonstration where we’ll review materials and cover key concepts like value, color, edges and brushwork. There will be lots of time to paint, ask questions and get one-on-one feedback. You’ll leave this workshop with advice to inspire your practice and tips to help you incorporate painting into your regular routine. Please plan to bring 2 to 3 reference photos. Tips on choosing good reference photos will be included with the materials list. This workshop is open to all levels. To learn more or register, click button below.
