Learn about this historical medium used by the Old Masters and give it a try yourself! In the morning session you’ll get to try your hand with this versatile paint to create transparent washes, opaque painting, and impasto. In the afternoon you’ll learn to paint a simple still life and see if casein if right for you!

Class will break for an hour at 1pm, please bring a lunch.

This class is designed so you don’t have to bring any materials, but for a small reimbursement of $10, paid directly to the instructor, all paints, brushes, substrate and other materials will be provided. But if you’re more comfortable working with your own materials or want to purchase materials to continue working in casein on your own, these are the materials we’ll be using in class.
