The Secrets of Egg Tempera

January 24 -26, 2013
an intensive weekend course  

Can you imagine that your main kitchen ingredients, such as eggs or vinegar were once supplies in every painting workshop?

Egg tempera has been one of the oldest painting techniques in the Western visual depiction. It was widely used in Europe till the 15th century, when it was overtaken by oil-paint. Nowadays, this technique is still used, mainly in Orthodox icon painting and by some contemporary artists.
At this course you will learn:
● How to prepare and paint with your own egg tempera
● How to choose the right painting brushes and canvases 
● How to make skin glue and your own Italian gesso
● How to prepare your panel for painting

The course will be taught by Dr. Barbara Guttman, a contemporary artist and art educator. To see some of Barbara's works made with the help of egg tempera please click here and here
