OLD MASTERS TECHNIQUES IN OIL PAINTING with Betsy Castleman Damez
Open to All Levels
This course is an experience in the Van Eyck or Old Masters technique of painting.
Students work with the raw materials – the pigments and binders (glues that attach pigments to a canvas support) as they learn the techniques of underpainting, layering and glazing. This is the classic method of approaching art, the way that Frederic Bartlett and Dora Tripp were taught at the Royal Academy of Art in Munich. Understanding these techniques gives the contemporary artist a deeper
understanding of materials and expands creative possibilities.

April 13, 15, 17, 20, 22 and 24, 2015. (Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays)
$650 members and non-members (Price is for 2 week, 6 hour sessions) (Includes materials)
Reservations Required – Classes are non-refundable
Please call (954) 703-2606 for more information and to register
