Event description
An introduction to alla prima (wet on wet) oil painting with Christy King. Five-week course on Saturdays, February 05 - March 05, 2-5pm.

About this event

Learn how to paint a still life with oil paint in the alla prima method (wet on wet) during this five-week course with artist Christy King. This type of oil painting can be completed in one day, while the paint is wet, by carefully and accurately drawing enclosed shapes for light and shadow areas, and building the painting methodically from there. The five-week course will explore color mixing and composition, and is a perfect introduction to oil painting, or for any oil painter who wants to practice alla prima or still life. Once learned, the alla prima method can be practiced independently and applied to any subject (not just still life).

A supply list and directions to the Eno Mill will be emailed to you after you purchase the class.

About the Artist

Christy is known for both her representational oil paintings and whimsical cut paper collages. She finds inspiration in North Carolina nature, when drawing and painting from life, and through the process of painting itself which provides a constant opportunity for learning and new experiences. Now in Chapel Hill, Christy grew up in eastern North Carolina and has also lived in DC and Nashville. She is an art educator with experience designing curriculum and teaching at Montessori schools and art museums including the National Portrait Gallery and Frist Art Museum. She majored in studio art and elementary education at UNC Chapel Hill and also has a master of education from Vanderbilt University. Her art is represented by Well+Wonder, Serena & Lily, and G. Grace Gallery, and you can view her work at christymking.com or on Instagram @christymking.
