ROMAN FRESCO PAINTING - ancient techniques for contemporary artists
14th - 18th may 2018 | Carey Mortimer and Olivia Irvine.
New course starting in 2017. The Romans painted frescoes using a technique called 'stucco lucido' - layers of marble dust plaster which were polished and shined, reworked and waxed; an interesting technique that has many possibilities for contemporary painters. Full details coming soon!
A selection of books is available to the students showing examples of ancient roman, medieval and contemporary painting.
Travel and accommodation to be arranged by students.
