Egg Tempera is a simple yet mysterious technique, the second oldest medium known to man. Used by the Egyptians over 3,000 years ago but brought to its artistic height during the later Middle Ages and early Renaissance period and revived in the early 1930’s by artists such as Reginald Marsh, Andrew Wyeth and Paul Cadmus. Egg Tempera is an easy, meditative, luminous technique that requires nothing but simple techniques with meticulous thought. It is a pure pigment medium that uses just three elements: water, egg and pigment. Paintings done with tempera last for decades, centuries and beyond. This course will introduce you the the basic techniques for making a portrait painting in this Renaissance tradition by making your own medium, mixing your own pigments, and painting your own masterpiece. Supplies are included in the cost of this workshop.

Please note that our classes are typically held in the lower level of Arlene's. Because access to the lower level is available only by stair, please let us know if using the stairs presents any difficulty for you in advance of the class so we can make alternate arrangements. We want to make sure everyone is able to enjoy and participate in our classes.
