Egg Tempera Techniques: Painting a Plum-Online Workshop

New Studio for the Visual Arts

Saturday, June 11 , 2022, 11:00 AM - 4:30 PM EDT
and Sunday June 12, 2022, 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM EDT

This is an introductory workshop that will focus egg tempera materials and technique. A plum will be the subject. The objective will be to impart the instructor’s technique so students can explore the medium on their own. We will not be looking for a finished painting, but will use the time to practice and understand the technique. The class will include demonstrations, such as making the binder, mixing it with dried pigment, and painting the plum. We will explore concepts such as scumbling, glazing, and using both opacity and transparency. Painting the background and brushstroke techniques will also be addressed. A pre-recorded video will be available before the start of the workshop to help familiarize the students with egg tempera. This workshop will take place live on Zoom. Individual help will be offered to students throughout the workshop. Some painting experience is helpful.

The class will meet online using Zoom, where we will discuss the dry brush technique and how to utilize it for painting this subject. The students will paint throughout the day as the Zoom meeting will remain live. The Instructor will offer advice to each student as they progress with their paintings and live demonstrations will reinforce the learning process. Students will text a photo of the work in progress throughout the day to the Instructor so she can offer advice and answer questions.

Magnolia Leaf

Dry Brush Watercolor or Gouache — Online

Online Workshop with Carrie Di Costanzo

Saturday, September 24, 2022, 11AM-4:30PM EDT

Gouache can be used to create rich, matte effects for botanical painting. Watercolor can produce luminous effects. This workshop will allow the student to choose which medium to use for this subject. There will be live demonstrations on mixing paint, applying washes, and gradually transitioning into using less water. Dry brush is the technique the Instructor uses for both watercolor and gouache, so the demonstrations are applicable for both mediums. We will discuss the similarities and differences between watercolor and gouache. A line drawing and photo of the magnolia leaf will be sent to participants before the start of the workshop, along with color suggestions. This workshop will take place live on Zoom and the students will send their work in progress throughout both days to the Instructor via text. Individual help will be offered throughout the workshop. Some experience using watercolor is recommended. Please be advised that this class will be recorded for the purpose of allowing students and interested parties to access the content after the class is finished.
