Registration: $95 + supplies ($35) 

One of the world's oldest and most beautiful painting mediums, favored by Byzantine icon painters, as well as by Fra Angelico, Botticelli, Andrew Wyeth, and George Tooker, egg tempera has a uniquely luminous appearance created through the build-up of many transparent layers of pigment tempered with egg yolk. This class is an introduction to the materials and techniques used to create such paintings. Students will learn to mix    paint from dry pigments, and will learn variations on the dry-pigment recipe as well as experiment with commercially available tubed egg tempera paints. They will also have the opportunity to try out a variety of rigid supports, and learn techniques which will allow them to create their own egg tempera paintings.
