NEW! Three Day Workshop!
Renowned for its luminosity, egg tempera is an ideal medium for rendering portraits, the human figure, still-lifes, and landscapes. In great demand today, this ancient method has the unique ability to create fine detail, countless textures, and glazes in a single session. All aspects of the medium will be covered from the mixing of paints with dry pigments, under painting, and glazing with warm and cool tones, to water gilding, stamping, and embellishment. This hands-on class will include in-depth instruction and demonstrations throughout.
PLEASE NOTE: This workshop is focused on, but not limited to, egg tempera. For those interested in working in oils or acrylics, you are welcome to bring your materials to the workshop and receive an equal lesson from Scherer and Ouporov!
Session One: Sunday, July 2, 11 am – 2 pm
