From BCB…

Come learn about egg tempera from Bainbridge artist Claudia McKinstry, who will be giving a demo at Bainbridge Arts and Crafts Saturday, July 2 at 12:30 pm.

In this podcast Georgia Browne, Bainbridge Arts & Crafts publicist, introduces us to long-time Bainbridge artist Claudia McKinstry. Claudia will be the featured artist in the BAC gallery for the month of July.  

Claudia has been a Bainbridge Island artist for over 40 years, painting in oil, watercolor and egg tempera.  Listen here as she tells us why she likes using egg tempera, what its characteristics are, and about her demo on July 2nd.  

Egg tempera has a very long history, and there are many recipes for the medium.  Claudia’s recipe starts with eggs from her own chickens. Her demo promises to be fascinating, for artists and non-artists alike.

This demo is part of a series of artist demos at Bainbridge Arts and Crafts; Georgia will be speaking with BCB regularly to introduce us to each month’s educational programs. It might be a demo, it might be a workshop or just an introduction to the artists featured for the coming month. For more information about programs at BAC, check their website ( early and often to learn what’s coming up.
