Students will be introduced to the history of medieval manuscript illumination artists of the 10th to 13th centuries. They will create their own illuminations using gouache medium and learn the following illumination forms: leaves, turning leaves, turning ribbons, diaper patterns, and the decoration of leading letters. They will use learn the techniques for decorating gold backgrounds and will complete a final project, suitable for framing. No artistic experience is necessary for the workshop and all materials will be provided by the instructor. N.B. this is not a course in calligraphy.
Michael Harrison’s presentation includes a disaster timeline with personal photographs and a video that gives a haunting documentation of the disaster site in Chernobyl and a rare view of the place and people who work and live there.
