In this two-part workshop, join us first in the exhibition galleries with conservators Kate Smith and Georgina Rayner for a close look at the portraits and learn what our curators, conservators, and scientists have discovered about them. Then take that experience to the Materials Lab, where you’ll make your own version of an ancient tempera painting using some of the same materials and techniques used by Roman-period artists.
