The painting technique workshop explores the essentials of painting. The fundamentals of mural and panel painting, gilding, glass painting and mosaics are taught so that students can develop an understanding of the key relationships in painting technique based on their own practice of the art. The selection of material is just as important as its treatment. The experience and insights of old and new masters are explored theoretically, applied in practice and approached experimentally. Having mastered technical structures, students can pursue their personal paths of artistic expression.

Students can attend painting technique, mosaics, glass painting or gilding courses to complement a basic knowledge of the chemical and physical properties of materials, thus acquiring technical know-how and exploring painting techniques in an experimental approach.
