“My experience in the Egg Tempera Painting class of Alina Smolyansky:
I had seen a demonstration of egg tempera painting years before so my interest was there.
The class was only five weeks, but it was excellent! All materials were provided, which was essential as I am not sure where one gets the ground pigments and the boards upon which we painted were all ready to go. We were provided with a first project that was excellently suited as an introduction to painting with egg tempera. The instruction by Alina was outstanding. She is an excellent painter and unlike many can teach the technique with ease. Essential to a beginner, she was incredibly patient with us. In spite of the intricacies of the technique she was able with careful attention to lead each of us to a successful painting by the end of the class! There are already multiple subsequent possible projects in mind. Looking forward to my next project! Thank you, Alina.” — David Walker, PhD
