Connie Davis and Sue Myers will be sharing their love of porcelain painting by teaching a class for four Thursdays in May, starting May 8th. This class will be offered in the evenings, from 6 - 9 pm, at the home of Connie in Grantville, PA.
Porcelain painting, or overglaze painting, is one of the oldest art forms. It started in China and was more expensive to own than gold. Only the kings, queens, and royalty could own these pieces. They are the only art work that does not fade in the sun. Porcelain is found in most museums and castles throughout the world. Connie and Sue are teaching this old world painting to keep the tradition alive.
The students will paint an ornament and a plate, which will be provided. The students should bring sable brushes, size 1(liner brush) 2, 6, and 10; small bottle or jar to hold oils (baby food jar); sharpie with fine point, pen or pencil; pen point nib and holder; three 6" white, glazed tiles to mix paints; a wipeout tool; palette knife; and a roll of Blue Shop towels.
