Having seen frescoes on church and palace walls, why not try painting one for yourself?
A painter-architect living in Florence, specialized in the ancient art of fresco painting, will teach you the art of painting frescoes in his private studio in the stunning Santa Croce square.
Using traditional materials and techniques, the docent will give you an introduction to the history of fresco painting. In a very accurate manner, you'll be guided step by step through the painting of a small fresco, which you will take home at the end.
It is an exclusive educational and fun experience for all ages and all artistic abilities. Beginners are very welcome!
The course length is 4 hours
What a wonderful experience learning how to make a fresco in Firenze! Emanuele's studio is easy to find and overlooks Santa Croce Piazza. He is a knowledgeable and patient teacher with a passion for fresco. He showed me each step of the fresco process. He helped me transfer my drawing to the surface and then paint it in layers of pigment. I'm very happy with the result and glad I signed up for this experience. Highly recommended for beginners and more advanced artists. (Airbn bexperience)
This is an absolutely one of a kind experience. Emanuele is a person of high intellect and culture and is a very good and patient teacher. Enthusiast and passionate to disseminate the ancient art of al fresco, he is a Rennaiscance man himself: an architect, a painter, a designer, art historian, traveller and music lover. His studio is in one of the most beautiful and must see places of Florence - Piazza Santa Croce. Four hours will fly, and yet what I could never expect was that we would be able to reproduce one of Michelangelo's operas al fresco. Absolutely amazing and highly recommended experience in the heart of Florence! ( airbnb experience)
