A creative workshop to introduce you to fresco painting, one of the oldest and most complex artistic painting techniques. Immersed in the eclectic and stimulating context of an art studio, you will be guided through the various stages of a fresco, from the preparatory phase of the support to be painted to the most expressive phase of the final painting. Your hosts, Maria Luisa and Salvatore, professional artists with various collaborations on the international scene, will welcome you into their finely restored studio.
In the first part of the workshop you will be engaged in the creation of a fresh plaster wall fragment, which is the most important layer of the entire fresco on which you will paint. Following this, you will create the preparatory drawing cardboard, which will be applied to the plaster using the ancient spolvero technique, allowing you to have a trace to follow in the final brush painting phase. At the end of the session you will have the satisfaction of taking home an artwork entirely created by you.
Before or after the workshop, the medieval village of Ponti sul Mincio, which hosts the illustration studio, is also worth a stroll: located in the first hinterland of Peschiera del Garda, it was awarded the Orange Flag for its historical and cultural heritage and the characteristic atmosphere that one can breathe among the historic streets of the village.
An experience for those who wish to experiment their artistic potential in the vast world of illustrative arts, but also for those who want to express their own style without conditioning and give shape to a personal creative idea. An opportunity to try your hand at an ancient art, which still retains its tradition and manual skills. An experience also suitable for children and teenagers or families looking for an activity to do all together during the holiday.
