Alla Prima painting is a form of quick, observant painting in which the painting is completed in one session (with breaks!). Sonja will first demonstrate the process for completing an alla prima painting, then provide assistance and critique as students work on their own painting. Students will provide materials for their own still life setup. Emphasis will be placed on color and value relationships.

Materials provided: Not provided.

Sonja Kodimer is passionate about the process of carefully observing and translating real life objects into beautiful paintings. She views the process as deeply meditative and reflective, a sharp antithesis to a world that encourages us to be reactive, seek instant gratification and spend little time observing ourselves and our reactions. Sonja has studied with Studio Escalier in Argenton-Chateau, France and the Ryder Studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico. 

Open Wednesday - Sunday
