Art Focus’ first demonstration of 2020 will focus on an unusual medium: egg tempera.
Vancouver iconographer and educator Alina Smolyansky will show how to use it — and talk about its history — at the Port Coquitlam art group’s meeting next Wednesday in The Outlet (behind PoCo city hall).
Smolyansky is one of the few teachers of egg tempera painting and Russian Orthodox icon painting in North America. She holds a bachelor’s degree in professional communication from Royal Roads University as well as a diploma in architecture.
Her works are held in private and public collections in Canada, United States, Germany, Great Britain, Australia, Thailand and Israel.
The demo at Leigh Square runs from 7 to 9 p.m on Jan. 22. and is open to the public at no cost.
