March 5th – 9th 2012: Fresco Workshop in Florence

This Intensive Fresco Workshop will take place at Accademia del Giglio in Florence, will have a duration of 5 days, from Monday 5th to Friday 9th March 2012, for a total amount of 30 hours of tuition.

During the workshop the 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 most peculiar quality of the fresco painting lies undoubtedly in its making: the pigment – a natural material – is laid on a fresh plastesetr 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 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.
