Maz has been enjoying teaching egg tempera short courses and summer schools at West Dean for 20 years. By attending a course Maz will help you to gain confidence in this traditional medium. With historic references she will teach you how to apply egg tempera on gesso panels by following group step by step exercises. These are complemented with individual tuition to complete your own unique paintings relating to your own subject matter, or that suggested by the course. Tuition is based on the fifteenth century methods of Cennino Andrea Cennino  adopted by many artists such as Michelangelo, Leonardo, Botticelli,  Pre-Raphaelites, Freda Carlo, Picasso, Andrew Wyeth and many more.

Maz has also had the pleasure of teaching a summer school at Missenden School of Creative Arts and has been invited back to give a weekend workshop in Egg Tempera Painting March 23-24. To book a place please view and make contact through their website:
