Subject: We are stippling!
Presented by: Joanna Truszkowska

Stippling is a restoration activity. In art conservation, it involves filling in the missing layer of paint in a painting. The scoring substrate can be a painting canvas with white ground or paper. To learn stippling you need to complete a six-year master’s degree, but to learn the technique you only need to come to a conservation workshop.
On prepared primers imitating the destroyed paintings of Hanna and Jacek Żuławski, we will paint with acrylic paints, matching the colours to what remains of the painting. In addition, in the exhibition hall, boards will show an example of the extent of the conservation and restoration work carried out on Hanna Żuławska’s paintings. We warmly invite you to join us, perhaps someone will find the soul of an artist-conservationist in themselves.
