About this Event

This class will be an introduction to painting in Prima Tura style. This is a method of direct painting with some mixing on the canvas as well as the palette. We will look at methods of blocking in a painting from still life to plein aire. Painting quickly to capture light effects and composition and painting best practices concerning materials will be discussed. This class is for students 18 and older. A materials list will be provided to registered students.

Teaching Artist Elena Shackleton has over 50 years watercolor painting experience, and has been teaching academically and privately for over 30 years. In addition to being a graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, she has studied with Pat Witt at the Barn Studio of Art, Henry Hensche at the Cape School of Art, and Morris Blackburn, Oliver Grimley and Louis Sloan were huge influences at the Academy. Elena is a member of the Lehigh Art Alliance and the Palatte Club. “I have taught privately in many venues for over thirty years in the classical methods passed down to me by my teachers. As iron sharpens iron, I have found that teaching others strengthens my own work. I look forward to continued adventures in following my muse where she leads. “ – Elena Shackleton
