The University Museum and Art Gallery will be hosting a Creative Arts Workshop highlighting the history and development of western painting. The workshop will give an overview of the historical development of materials commonly used to create paintings, along with a look into artists’ individual studio practices throughout the centuries. In addition, each participant will produce an artwork of his/her own—beginning with the preparation of panel support to the creation of a final drawing or painting. The workshop will consist of two modules: Deconstructing a Painting and Painting Media. The first module will cover how artists choose and construct canvas and panel supports, while Painting Media will discuss the history of media and painting techniques.
