Experience the ancient medium of egg tempera — updated for the contemporary painter. We’ll work on cross-hatching, scumbling, and glazing as well as panel preparation, traditional gesso, paint making, and varnish to cultivate our painting method. Students will have the option of following along with the instructor to create a Andrew Wyeth inspired landscape painting or work on their own project.
