Course description:
This introductory painting course covers techniques such as color mixing, glazing, scumbling, basic composition, hatching to build form, brush handling as well as experimental and alternative applications.  Through step-by-step demonstrations, students learn recipes for mixing egg tempera paint from scratch and preparing traditional gesso grounds. 

Using this knowledge, students complete two paintings over the 10-week course which explore their own subject matter and imagery. 

Egg tempera is an ancient painting technique still used widely today, made by mixing egg yolk with colorful pigments and applied in thin layers to wood panel.  This unique course provides the opportunity for students to work with raw materials, learn how paint is made, and expand the scope and application of their artistic practice.
