Intensive Fresco Seminar next December in Florence

The most peculiar quality of the fresco painting lies undoubtedly in its making: the pigment – a natural material – is laid a fresh plaster several times in a short lapse of time, and through a cohesion process it fixes itself in the plaster, creating warm and subtle tones. The artist can make no mistakes, as correcting them would imply destroying the whole work. That is why the fresco technique is particularly difficult to learn and master.

During the next workshop taking place at AdG from November 30th to December 4th 2009 students will follow the essential steps to making a fresco: for example they will learn how to prepare the “arriccio” (the preliminary layer of plaster spread on the tile), the cardboard for the sinopia and the use of the pigments.

The teacher will guide the students through the different phases of this original and ancient technique. At the end of this short but very intensive workshop, students will have acquired the necessary skills for making a fresco on their own.

The workshop will take place in our institute and will have a duration of 5 days, from Monday to Friday, for a total amount of 30 hours of tuition. The course will be held both in English and Italian.
Schedule: Monday through Friday, morning and afternoon.
