PROGRAM: Barbara Zanelli - alla prima portrait 

(for artists interested in portraiture regardless of their chosen medium)

Barbara graduated with a BFA in illustration from Syracuse University in 1999 and then moved to NYC.  She met success in shows at Figureworks Gallery and Get Real Art, but felt drawn to study classical painting n Florence, Italy.  She lived there for one year studying drawing under Mario Pachioli.  Then in 2004, she moved to Philadelphia on a full scholarship to study with Nelson Shanks at Studio Incamminati.  It was here that she developed her portrait painting and color theory skills.  She left the atelier in 2006 to work on a series of large thematic paintings.  After traveling and painting extensively, Barbara returned to Incamminati to finish the Professional Program in 2015 and served as a fellow at the school for two years, teaching the drawing curriculum to students from Project Home and gesture drawing to 1st year students.  She currently teaches painting and drawing a Journey's Way and Mindy Flexer Art School.
