Alla Prima Art Circle
Alla Prima Art Circle of Bacolod, founded in May 2010, is a progressive group of up-and-coming artists named after the Italian style of painting "alla prima," meaning "at once".
Initially founded by the workshoppers of Cre8! during the summer of 2010, Alla Prima Art Circle later accepted member artists who are not graduates of Cre8! but artists of like mind and spirit.
Female members call themselves as primas, the male are referred to as primos, and children of the primas call themselves segundas.
Today, the Alla Prima Art Circle or Alla Prima for short has members from all over Negros island as well as from Iloilo, Manila, and even in the United States.
