FCA-COC Monthly Meetings

Our next meeting will be on Monday January 8th, 2024 at 6:30 PM.   It will be a Zoom meeting. Members will be sent a link.  If you are a non-member and would like to check us out, please contact kitbell@shaw.ca for a link.

Note the new time - 6:30 PM  

This month James Postill SFCA will be giving a presentation and demonstration on Fresco painting.

Fresco painting, method of painting water-based pigments on freshly applied plaster, usually on wall surfaces. The colours, which are made by grinding dry-powder pigments in pure water, dry and set with the plaster to become a permanent part of the wall. Fresco painting is ideal for making murals because it lends itself to a monumental style, is durable, and has a matte surface. A famous example is the Sistine Chapel.

Fresco is hardly seen in Canada, largely because of the unavailability of lime putty here, at least until now! It is James's passion to make fresco accessible to artists here and to pass along what he's learned, and iscontinuing to learn, about this wonderful medium.  

For those unable to make the meetings, the presentations are available on the chapter's Youtube channel.
