For those artists who may be interested in learning about gilding with 23K gold. A free opportunity is being offered at the Getty Museum.
Each Thursday through January 17, artist Sylvana Barrett will be giving a detailed demonstration of fine art gilding on parchment from 1:00–2:00 p.m.
This will be followed at 2:00–3:00 p.m by a demonstration of painting, including the paint making process as it was done during the Renaissance.
Since the demonstrations are free, seating is limited and no reservations are required, it would be a good idea to show up early. Parking at the Getty is $8.00 per car. Admission is free.
This a demonstration, not a hands-on class. I have taken a number of classes with Sylvana Barrett at the Getty and at the Huntington. She is excellent at clearly conveying complex information.
