GOLD LEAFING AND ANTIQUE ART TECHNIQUES SPECIAL ARTIST RESIDENCY – 3 WEEKS (EXTENDABLE)
The Gold Leafing and Antique Art Techniques Special Residency is an Art Production Residency that includes 3 weeks of instruction by a prominent master artist and art restorer in several diverse antique techniques using mediums and supports traditionally used in pre-Columbian and baroque art. For this residency, artists work in our partnered studio at one of Puebla’s most important art museums, in the central historic district. Artists can apply the technique of gold and silver leafing, learn the use of diverse stuccos and traditional primers (cactus and lime, rabbit glue, gelatin) and its use on different supports (paper, wood, clay), and experimenting with different finishes with natural pigment patinas and egg tempera paint. A combination of some of the chosen techniques is offered as its own individual 3-week program. Materials for the course are included in the program fee (materials for additional project production are not included).

Known as the "City of Angels,” Puebla is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that lies 136 km (84 mi) from Mexico City and has approximately 5,000 colonial buildings. Puebla is famous for a deep cultural identity, delicious cuisine, Talavera ceramics, and traditions rooted in the 16th-century Baroque and enriched by a blend of five pre-Hispanic/indigenous cultures, Arabic, Jewish, French and Spanish influences. Accessible via two international airports in Puebla (PBC) and Mexico City (MEX), Puebla lies 45 km (28 mi) east of the Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl volcanoes, giving the residents a magnificent view of their snow-topped peaks. At an elevation of 2200 m (7200 ft), Puebla features a temperate subtropical highland climate, resulting in an average of only three days a year seeing temperatures rise above 29°C (84°F).
