Egg Tempera with Young Children

[ Thread ][ Subject ][ Author ][ Date ]

Do any of you have experience doing egg tempera with young children?

I'm planning on doing this with 2nd graders. What type of ground can I use
that is inexpensive, easy to prepare and successful for children?
(Inexpensive being a key word here!)

Also, any suggestions on how to mix the egg and pigments? I would love to use
found pigments--various crushed stones, earth, plant material, etc.

Thanks for any advice, anecdotes, ideas in advance!
