ARTitude is a short version of our group name – Women with ARTitude. We’ve been meeting on a monthly basis for about two years, originally to offer support and encouragement in our artistic expression. We’ve all come to art through diverse routes which makes for an interesting and stimulating mixture of styles and subject matter. In April last year we had to postpone our exhibition at the Union Gallery, Edinburgh, however we continue creating new pieces of work to exhibit in the future and we are therefore delighted to have this opportunity to showcase some of our work online through Edinburgh Palette. We are Deb Ball, Sheena Berry, Gloria Henderson, Evie Jamieson, Barbara Moyes and Lorna Nisbet.

7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Classes run every Monday apart from some Holidays. You can join us any Monday.
The main focus of this workshop is on helping you to find your own personal style. To help you develop creative practice and find the confidence that you need to make creativity a part of your daily life.
It is an ongoing Class but students are guided individually through the process of creating an Icon.
Not recommended for complete beginners but if you have some experience drawing or painting but not Icon painting please contact me and we can discuss if it will be suitable for you.
You will be guided through all the stages of creating an Icon. You will be supported in conveying your own ideas and a personal style.
Peaceful music played in between feedback will help you come to a quiet and meditative place.
You will deepen your understanding and practice of the principles of the egg tempera technique which include:
- The composition used in icon painting
- Icon styles including Byzantine and Russian
- Preparation of egg yolk binding medium
- Making your own paints from dry pigments
- Working with thin layers
- Egg tempera brushwork
- Dry brushwork
