Artists from Ancient Egypt through Medieval Europe to American Masters such as Andrew Wyeth and James Gurney have used tempera – the technique of mixing dry pigments with egg yolk, glue or casein – to create paintings with intricate detail and luminous, jewel-like color. Learn all aspects of the medium including the characteristics of each binder, brushes and surfaces, mixing and storing paint, and both layered and direct, gestural, painting methods. Work from a still life or your own drawings or photographs. View/download the materials list.
