Learning to Fresco…in Italy
05.30.13 |
Lebanon Valley College student Lauren Brumbach of Oley, Pa., along with fellow students, painted quickly to finish up the last details on her fresco before the plaster dried. The course in Fresco, part of the Umbra Institute's fine arts offerings, is one of the only classes in fresco in the world.

This semester students started by creating a first, rough layer with a mixture of sand and lime plaster, then learned from Professor Bill Pettit how to apply the smoother layers over the top. The last layer is the hardest: it has to be applied and then painted within three hours. The students also took a trip to Rome to see the amazing examples from the Roman Empire and the Italian Renaissance, an inspiration for their own walls back in Perugia.

"I really liked that it was an art class in an unusual medium," said Brumbach, an art and art history major at LVC.
