Experience the process of painting and what it’s like to be a painter! Tempera paint is a medium with many desirable qualities. It is inexpensive, has bright, pure colors and is nontoxic. Good premium tempera paints are readily available and easy to work with.

Children will learn how to mix complementary and analogous colors and tints and shades. They will learn how to handle a brush and paint their own compositions. Students will be exposed to a new artist, painting style and painting theme each week.

Materials will be provided by Arts Center East, but if you would like to bring your own, Rebecca recommends:
Blick Premium Tempera, Saxs, Crayola, Faber-Castell and Crayola are acceptable paint brands. 5 colors to start, more can be added
Various sizes of stiff brushes
Pad of 80lb or heavier pad of Mixed Media paper or cardboard or matboard
Water cup, paper towels, pencil and eraser.

Rebecca Moran, MFA in Visual Art teaches drawing, painting at Eastern Connecticut State University.
