Adult | All Skill Levels

Instructor: Joseph Lombardo

Tuesdays, October 10 –  November 7 

10:00am – 1:00pm

Learn the technique of Direct Painting otherwise known as “Alla Prima.” Alla prima can be interpreted as ‘at once’ or ‘at first attempt.’ We will make a painting a day, start to finish. This immediate painting process will teach confidence in material and brushwork. Students will learn to loosen-up and paint quickly without fuss. We will explore various direct painting techniques including drawing, staining, palette knife, vignette, mark-making, large and small scale. We will study a new subject each week covering landscape, floral, interior, portrait, and architecture. These lessons will be process focused; each class will begin with a one-hour painting demonstration.

This class is currently full. Please email your name and a contact phone number to Education Coordinator Lindsay Lisanti ( to be added to the waitlist.
