CHATTANOOGA. In this three-day workshop at Townsend Atelier, Felicia Forté will teach Alla Prima painting, or wet-into-wet painting using the Zorn Palette. This palette was made famous by Swedish painter Anders Zorn (1860-1920) who used only four colors to achieve a wide array of colors in his painting. Students will work from a live model each day. Model fee is included in the cost of the workshop.  There will be a one-hour lunch break each day.

“This single session painting is a stimulating method which teaches you to be present in every brush stroke, focusing on only the essentials, ultimately teaching you great dexterity and control.”
—Stan Townsend, Townsend Atelier
