Kathryn uses the oil painting technique known as weton- wet or “alla prima.” This method is simply the practice of applying fresh oil paint into existing paint that has not completely dried. Complete paintings, using this technique, take a relatively short period of time, commonly in one sitting.

NOTE: For the Sep 10, Sep 24, and Oct 8 classes— special arrangements with Kathryn, and a $10 fee, will secure all paints and supplies except canvas. This gives students an opportunity to try the classes without investing in the paints and supplies. Come try this exciting style of painting.

Instructor: Ms. Bartscht is an award-winning artist and a certified teacher in “alla prima” painting.
