ARTS(F)400 Fresco Painting
Offered: Fall, Spring, Late Spring, Summer
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.
