Course Overview

Learn the traditional techniques of ancient fresco painting and discover how the creation of a material surface can offer new possibilities for contemporary painting. Mason Kimber will guide you in preparing surfaces, mixing plaster renders, sketching with paint and working within the time limitations of various materials as they dry. Whilst fresco painting on panels will be the focus, it will be used as a springboard to develop ideas in other mediums that relate to your own practice. Drawing from his experience at the British School at Rome, Mason brings an enthusiastic, individually tailored approach with a wide knowledge of painterly techniques and material strategies to help expand the formal and conceptual parameters of your work. With an understanding of international contemporary painting practices and particular interest in the materiality of paint, Mason will mentor you to develop a critically engaged, process-led body of work.

The course is suitable for intermediate and experienced students and artists.
