The Art of Pompeian Fresco

trial_kelly_sample3.jpg (62224 bytes)

The art of true Pompeian fresco painting will be offered in this unique course. In this workshop participants will paint historic images from the First and Third styles of Pompeian frescoes. We will use traditional colors as well as learn testing methods for contemporary pigments recently available to the fresco painter. Class members will learn to mix their colors for an entire project. Techniques used to transfer images that allow for several days of work will also be offered. 

Students will mix the slaked lime plaster need for each day’s painting and apply it to the panels that have been prepared for them. Each participant will paint a panel in the First or Third Style. On the first day participants will learn and experience hands-on techniques, methods and "secrets" of professional fresco plaster application from the true Olde School English Craftsmen (Ian Hardwick - brings 25 years of experience in plastering trade to this class). Students will learn the technique of attaching today’s work (giornata) to the previous day’s painting; the distinctive plastering method that allows for larger compositions.

The second day will be devoted to the scrupulous details of preparation necessary for a successful fresco, learn aspects of designing frescoes based on giornatas (painting days), making of a cartoon, transfer techniques, brushes and foundations of color.  Glenn Fischer will guide the class through the nuances of pigment preparation and storing.

The third day will be dedicated to reviewing of the skills acquired in the first two days of the workshop. Together with ILia Anossov students will explore history of Pompeian Frescoes and study specifics of Pompeian fresco and plaster.

Days 4 and 5 will be dedicated to painting during which each student will complete a minimum of two frescoes from their own designs refined during the class and will be painting in the true fresco technique, applying paint on the damp plaster....

Be prepared for a fast paced and intensive class - ILia Anossov, Ian Hardwick and Glenn Fischer will take you on a 3 day journey into a professional fresco studio!

Painting in the true fresco technique is a special experience, for centuries fresco was greeted as "The Mother of all Arts". The pigment particles are held in position by the lime as it carbonizes. The fusion of the painting with the architectural wall surface is the distinctive quality of true fresco. The luminosity of the surface lends a unique glowing effect to the colors used in the painting. We are in touch with the tactile, artistic and spiritual experiences of two thousand years ago, the fresco artists of Pompeii.
Roman wall painting has been well preserved in Pompeii since the eruption of Mt Vesuvius in 79 AD. The Great Age of Pompeian Fresco will be presented along with the art of painting in the true fresco tradition. Fresco has been the favorite medium to monumentalize and commem
orate the spiritual and cultural messages of the past.
 

Technique acquired during the workshop will also enable students to paint frescoes of different periods and styles.
