Short alla prima portraits are a great method to effectively improve your painting skills.

In this class you will learn to draw loose portraits. Every session will be with a life model. The structure of the class is not as strict as the fundamental classes. There will be short and longer poses. You won't get specific assignments but work on your portraits. Of course the instructor is always there to help you with feedback.

This class is aimed at intermediate students, who want to practice and improve their oil painting skills. If you have never painted with oils, please take our Fundamental Oil Painting Class first.

Group instructions will be in German. And your personal feedback in english.
