Historic Painting Techniques: Traditional Panel Painting Methods

The Faculty of Arts, Design and Social Sciences have developed a brand new summer school starting Monday 9 July 2018, focusing on older traditional techniques.

Learn historic painting techniques from Northumbria's conservation of fine art experts in this unique summer school which will run over five days. If you've ever dreamt of recreating paintings from history while learning traditional techniques and methods such as panel preparation, painting and gliding, then this five-day course is for you. Delivered in Northumbria's cutting-edge arts conservation studios by a practice-based professional team of conservation experts, this practical, workshop-based course is ideal for all levels, from practising artists, aspiring amateurs and students, to those engaged in driving and enabling practice development in the museum and arts conservation sector, or anyone with a general interest in historic painting techniques.

Northumbria is one of only three institutions in the UK providing courses for art conservators who wish to specialise in easel paintings and currently the only course for  those wishing to specialise in watercolours, prints, drawings and paper. The University has excellent relationships with partner museums such as Tyne and Wear Museums and Archives, Bowes Museum and the National Trust, and our expert team is passionate about sharing its knowledge of historic art techniques, practice and art analysis.
