Event Details

The incredible edible egg can be used to paint! The Ancient Egyptians used egg tempera to paint on stone, while Byzantine artists in Europe used tempera on their illuminated manuscripts. UMAG is offering paint-making workshops for families to create paint using fresh egg yolk and dry pigments. Participants will learn about this centuries-old technique, and have the opportunity to paint on plasterboard using their own paint.

Preparation: It is suggested that participants prepare reference images, such as landscapes or animal related theme.
Special note: Egg tempera can be quite pungent.

原來食用蛋也可用作繪畫!古埃及人會以蛋彩於石頭上繪畫,而歐洲的拜占庭藝術家亦會使用蛋彩製作彩繪手抄本。香港大學美術博物館將舉辨親子繪畫工作坊,讓家長與小孩一同透過使用新鮮蛋黃及粉狀顏料創作。參加者將學習到這已留存過百年的古老技術,並有機會於石膏板上完成一幅自己的蛋彩作品。

請準備:建議參加者先準備圖片以作參考,如以風景或動物為題。
請注意:蛋彩氣味會較為刺鼻。
