  • Los Angeles is a city often described as having no center. Its art community has turned that "disadvantage" into an advantage and given itself a license for adventure. Organizations, galleries, and artists find decentralization to be an exciting option and they establish their addresses in unexpected neighborhoods and zones in the city and even beyond, in other cities and states. What are the challenges and advantages of this programmatic and conceptual strategy? What are the risks, to organization and audience alike? Is this necessary, and if so, is it sustainable?

Fresco Painting - Past and Present


Students learn traditional techniques to produce fresco paintings on panel in a contemporary context. During this studio-based course, participants create fresco panels using buon fresco techniques. Buon fresco is a method of painting, which involves the application of pigments, finely ground in water or limewater, to a freshly plastered wall or panel. Students are shown methods of transferring designs to the fresco panel. The choice of appropriate ‘dry pigment’ and its preparation are discussed, along with other technical and artistic considerations, to develop a working knowledge of the technique. Each student completes over four (TBD) fresco study tiles and panels. In addition Mezzo and Secco fresco methods and restoration and conservation techniques are discussed during the class. In mezzo fresco water based pigment is applied over semi-cured lime plaster ground. In fresco secco water-based pigment with an addition of a binder, is applied over fully cured plaster ground.

Prerequisite: None
