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 can be applied in a day, and yet the medium also allows for meticulous linear details. This comprehensive five-day workshop, taught by an internationally recognized tempera painter, offers the opportunity for in-depth work in egg tempera: students will spend five full days working on a painting of their own design. Koo will help with the initial planning stages, provide on-going discussion and critiques, give painting demonstrations, and discuss the important design elements of old master painting.
Demonstrations presented in this workshop include: creating granite, marble, and other textured surfaces; decorative and geometric patterns; incised lettering; painting a portrait in egg tempera; oil glazing over tempera; and more.
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.
Please note there is a $75 material fee for this workshop.

In the 90’s Koo returned east and settled in a small town in Southern New Hampshire. For three years she studied classical oil painting with Numael and Shirley Pulido, while pursuing egg tempera studies on her own. Eventually she selected egg tempera and silverpoint as her primary mediums.
