Lemon Tree Gallery and Studio presents:
Introduction to Porcelain Painting taught by porcelain artist Sally McNeilan
1 PM- 4 PM
Cost: $100 materials included
This 3 day class will take you through the entire process of painting on porcelain and firing it in the kiln. This class will be limited to 5 students and will include all materials and firing.
Porcelain or China Painting is an old art form where special mineral based paints are applied to a glazed piece of china. The item is then fired and the artwork becomes permanent. Depending on the effect you are trying to achieve, a piece may be fired only once or many times. Three to four firing are standard, with additional paint added to achieve depth and detail before each firing.
This introductory class will begin with basic brush strokes and move on to create a small plate painted with hydrangeas.
Sally McNeilan is currently the President of the Virginia Chapter of the World Organization of China Painters, and the vice-chair of the World China Painters show and conference for 2017.
Other dates and times are available. Please call if you are interested.
