Workshop Description

Introduction to Egg Tempera with Alina Gallo

This introductory egg tempera workshop will begin with a short presentation that over views the technique, the materials and pigments used and cross-cultural historical and contemporary examples of the painting style in the region. Workshop participants will create this specialized paint medium and learn the basics of a traditional glazing technique by first creating a simple still life painting. A connection will be made through art history and a play of the imagination, drawing and painting technique will be developed further to create a finished painting panel. 

To register please contact us on +971(0)4 341 7303 or emailprojects@thejamjardubai.com. Registration fee of AED 60 is applicable. Space is limited. This workshop is open to 18+ years and all ability levels.

Featuring Timurid and Safavid period inspired miniature paintings that depict scenes from the Arab Spring. Focusing on events in which the West has intersected the uprisings, I present a hybridized perspective of a millennia old interplay, both of conflict and collaboration, between the East and the West.
