Buon Fresco Artist Shares Traditional Methods In New Workshops May/June 2008

Friend to, Regional editor of Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine, and head of his own Atelier, Daan Hoekstra will be sharing with a select group of students and advanced artists techniques in traditional fresco. Picture above illustrates the traditional lime slaking process. Daan is based in a small cultural town in northern Mexico.

Hoekstra was a former student of Richard Lack student and started the influential Classical Realism Quarterly publication, that today (although hard to find and out of print) is still a font of information about classical training and philosophical thinking. Daan worked side by side with Mark Balma (another Lack student) who is most known for his traditional frescos in America and beyond.

To join Daan for fresco workshops in Mexico (tentatively set for May/June 2008), please feel free to visit Daan Hoekstra's personal artist web site or his atelier site .
