Beginning on Monday, Sept. 14, the Farnsworth Art Museum will host a six-session, online workshop entitled "Introduction to Egg Tempera." The workshop, led by artist Joan Brady, will take place on consecutive Mondays and Thursdays through Oct. 1 from 1:30 to 3 p.m. on Zoom.

All are invited to explore the water-based medium of egg tempera by making paint using egg yolk and powdered pigments to paint a still life. As inspiration, students will view and analyze egg tempera works by Andrew Wyeth and other artists in order to gain understanding of the medium. All levels are welcome.

Brady is a classically trained artist specializing in the methods and materials of the Great Masters. Currently she applies this traditional medium to ever-evolving compositions, including paintings on 23 karat gold leaf.

Brady earned a B.A. from Mount Holyoke College, Mass., where she earned the Phi Beta Kappa Prize in Art. She holds an M.A.L.T. degree from the Notre Dame of Maryland University, Md.

Her paintings are found throughout the East Coast in the form of murals, trompe l’oeil, and framed works. Clients include the Henry DuPont Winterthur Museum, Delaware; and The Hotel Hershey, Pennsylvania. She has appeared on Lifetime Television, and her work has been published in Better Homes and Gardens magazine, among others. She won the Maryland Wine Festival Poster competition and was awarded a Summer Residential Artist Fellowship at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.

Brady also makes pottery inspired by life on a Maine island. Work can be found through Winter Works on Monhegan Island, and Archipelago in Rockland. Brady joyfully teaches various art media through workshops, lectures, and online to students of all ages.

The fee for this program is $180; $150 for Farnsworth members. To register for this program, or for more information, please visit
