Old as the Egyptians and most famous during the Renaissance, egg tempera painting is becoming increasingly popular with artists today. Tempera has unsurpassed luminosity. Dozens of glazes and scumbles can be applied in a day, and yet the medium also allows for meticulous linear detailing.

Because of its luminosity and fine line work, egg tempera is an ideal medium for rendering the human face. In this workshop you will learn every step of how to develop a portrait in egg tempera, with ongoing individual instruction and critiques from Schadler. Schadler explains the traditional Old Master palette used to develop flesh tones. She will also work on a painting of her own, so you can see firsthand how she develops her egg tempera portraits. The workshop includes a photography session in which you learn how to light and pose a model to create visually strong photographs that already look like beautifully designed paintings.

You may work from your own photographs, from photos supplied by Schadler, or from a copy of an Old Master egg tempera portrait.

Open to all levels of painters, from beginner to advanced. A demonstration on the essentials of working in egg tempera will be provided for beginning students.



TUITION: $650 (Materials fee: $60 payable to instructor on first day - cash or check, please)
