Sandy Thibeault Workshops
Egg Tempera I
All levels welcome, no egg tempera experience required
Eliminate the mystery of egg tempera painting!

Participants will work on a small still life. Sandy will provide the pigments, True Gesso Panels, eggs, paper towels, cups for egg and water, small plastic sectional palettes, as well as eye droppers and scissors. Each student will receive Egg Tempera: Tools, Techniques & Tips a 40-page guide compiled by the instructor. Visit this link to download a minimal materials list/info sheet.

If you cancel your workshop within two weeks of its start, you will receive a refund minus a $100 fee due to the committed preparation time and material expenses on the part of the instructor.
I love my workshops to be a “discussion” and not just “lecture”…..so at any time feel comfortable to add to the conversation or ask a question. During our workshop we will debunk a few of the misconceptions of Egg Tempera and demystify the process of painting like a 15th century master. Visit these links for registration and payment.
I want you to complete the workshop feeling satisfied creatively, with lots of new skills and with the excitement to continue your exploration of this wonderful old medium.
Because we want to spend the majority of our time on application technique and not on drawing, a systematic approach will lead participants through the process of painting a simple still life from a photo. While methodical for teaching and learning purposes, each participant’s painting will be “an original” and will display the unique sensibilities of each individual. Experienced painters (of any medium) may choose their own composition as described in the materials list.
A suggested minimal materials list can be downloaded. The instructor will supply the pigments, eggs, True Gesso panels, paper towels, cups for egg and water, small plastic sectional palettes, and other incidentals…as well as eye droppers and scissors to share.
