Description
This 2-hour class will start with an overview of grisaille (monochrome) painting in the late Middle Ages. The bulk of the class will be hands-on instruction in the techniques of grisaille using authentic materials (tempera paints made from ground pigments and glair). Students should bring a selection of paintbrushes (including old brushes suitable only for mixing paint), an eggcup-style mixing tray, at least one water glass, paper towels, and a pencil. The instructor will provide pigments, binder, and paper.
