Art Is...Tempera Techniques

( 26:01 )

Artist Gail Price first shows how to paint different tempera techniques including opaque and transparent qualities, wet-into-wet, dry brush, scraping wet paint, texture, impasto, and collage. Then, she uses these techniques and more in demonstration paintings of a postage stamp design, a still life, a science theme painting of insects, and a landscape, explaining how these can be used as exciting cross-curricular projects in the classroom. Tempera Painting: Color and Design is also available and complements this program.
