To understand the art of fresco painting is to understand the genius of Renaissance masters like Michelangelo, Raphael and Masaccio. Take a Tuscan tour to discover some of the world's greatest art.
This interactive workshop provides both an informative lesson in the history of fresco and a hands-on experience with the materials and techniques of fresco creation. This is a Florence travel experience not to be missed!
The setting is the private studio of an accomplished fresco artist who is acting as your private Florence guide, and begins with a brief lecture/overview of fresco. You will then be guided through the steps of preparing a surface, drawing and transferring a drawing (cartoon), and finally applying the paint.
You will be able to explore first-hand the art of fresco painting by using the same materials and techniques of the Renaissance masters. Your Florence guide's method of combining historical knowledge with artistic practice provides for a unique educational and entertaining experience for travelers of all ages.
At end of this truly unique Florence tour, participants take home their own fresco. Since the proper materials are critical to fresco, much attention will be paid to the traditions and conditions of fresco making.
