Fresco Painting


ARTS(F)400 Fresco Painting

Credits: 3
Offered: Fall, Spring, Late Spring, Summer
Prerequisite: None

Fresco Painting is a class where the fascinating and time-proven process of painting on fresh plaster is taught. Beginning with the drawing of the first cartoon, students learn to prepare and apply “calce” (lime), execute a fresco, and then how to remove it for transportation. This class is of great value not only to studio arts majors, but also to art history majors and persons interested in conservation.
