Adult Workshop » Egg Tempera with Jane Irish

Invigorate your painting practice and gain insight into historic works using egg tempera under the direction of Philadelphia-based master artist Jane Irish! Experience egg tempera painting with a fresh focus on mark, memory, and touch through focused exercises and experimentation in this one-day workshop. Begin in the morning with participatory demos of techniques inspired by Thomas Hart Benton, George Tooker, and early Renaissance grisaille underpainting. We will make detailed copies from reproductions. In the afternoon, learn to infuse liveliness with step-by-step instructions to obtain free expression using this historic medium. Stimulating discussions, critiques, and additional take-home exercises will further enhance the workshop experience. All materials provided, and guests are encouraged to purchase lunch from our coffee bar, or bring their lunch.

You can view more of Jane’s work on her website:
