Full color 7 giornata fresco painting of the Sts Innocent of Alaska & Jacob Nesvetov Fresco in the Summer Programs Pavilion at St Innocent Orphanage in Tijuana area of Mexico (30 minutes drive from San Diego).
Wall has been prepared with 3 layers of base fresco plaster and final version of Sinopia is completed. We will paint the full color fresco one giornata (daily section) at the time. Outline of each giornata will be transferred on to a fresh plaster (intonaco) using tracings taken from full scale cartoon.
The funding will be used to cover the cost of painting and intonaco plastering needs.
This is a great opportunity to take part in the painting process and receive onsite one-one-one training in fresco painting.
With a contribution of $1500 you will receive Fresco School Membership and 4-day workshop at the site of the ongoing fresco project (eligible for SICA CrowdAid®). You will learn wall and plaster preparation, cartoon development, preparation of fresco paint from natural pigments, plaster application and painting of the fresco. You will take home 1-3 of your own fresco studies. We begin painting in October with scheduled completion by the second part of December – you can pick any date for your 4-day workshop between those months. Room and Board are included.
