Kress Tempera 2015 Summer Workshop

 In recent years the Kress Foundation has supported short-term fellowships that offer a broad introduction to technical art history for art history faculty and advanced students. The Foundation is now supporting a practical workshop with a focus on the working methods of Early Italian tempera painters that is intended for curators and educators at Kress Collection museums. Through this five-day hands-on workshop participants will be given an opportunity to work directly with historically accurate materials. Each participant will create a small-scale reconstruction of a 15th-century Italian egg tempera painting (pre-selected) from the Samuel H. Kress Collection. Participants will also receive a set of representative raw material samples and a packet of educational materials to be used along with their own reconstructions as educational didactics at their home institution.

"England's Hidden Treasures is a great experience that combines an internship at a heritage site, tours of museums in a way you would never normally have access to and a great social experience."

‘The Hidden Treasures programme is a once in a lifetime experience. I got to meet students who will be working in my field from all over the world. I also got to meet other museum professionals who gave great information and advice. BG and Lincoln were beautiful and welcoming.’
