Draw & Paint with Lucas - EGG TEMPERA PAINTING

  • $100.00

Discover Egg Tempera with Catherine Lucas at the Visual Arts Center (VAC). Egg Tempera is beautifully suited for a broad range of painting styles from highly realistic to more decorative and stylized. The medium dates back to the ancient Egyptians and is becoming increasingly popular with artists today. The medium is unsurpassed in its luminosity. It can be worked very broadly in washes or achieve the most minute detail in a painting. Since egg tempera dries quickly, dozens of glaze layers and scumbles can be applied in a day. Students will learn both traditional and contemporary approaches and techniques, putting to use the wide variety of effects that can be achieved. Students will work from their own still life set up or images of their choosing.


Tuesdays, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
