Welcome to the new online home of the Society of Tempera Painters! Due to an unfortunate situation with our hosting provider, our previous site suffered problems with stability, and we needed to create a replacement site on short notice.

We will be restoring content soon, taking the opportunity to better organize information to maintain the site as a primary source for artists interested in the practice of egg tempera. You can look forward to articles and resources in the following areas:

  • – Events

    Snowdrop and The Seven Little Men
    Snowdrop and The Seven Little Men, Tempera on Gesso on Canvas, John D. Batten, 1897
  • – Featured Artists
  • – History
  • – Materials & Suppliers
  • – Media
  • – Publications
  • – Techniques
  • – Q & A

We also have greatly enjoyed the discussion forums, and plan to bring them back in a fresh form as soon as possible. Please check back for updates as we grow our new site, and contact us if you have any suggestions or questions. Happy painting!
