Traditional Egg Tempera Paint Making & Technique with Rachel Warkentin
Location: Portland Studio
Teacher: Rachel Warkentin
Egg tempera is one of the oldest and most archival painting mediums, delivering long lasting and intensely vibrant colors. It’s also non toxic, and an excellent tool for a sustainable art practice. Many egg tempera paintings from the 1300s look every bit as bright today as they did when they were first painted!
In this in-depth workshop, led by artist Rachel Warkentin, students will learn to prepare two different recipes for egg tempera, learning to make their own paint from entirely natural materials, including historic mineral and earth pigments. Students will also explore different traditional and contemporary application techniques. This workshop is suitable for anyone interested in exploring a traditional painting medium, beginners and practicing artists alike. Students will leave with two distinct egg tempera recipes, a materials resource list, and a finished egg tempera painting.
