Come to the perfect place in Italy to encounter Italian culture, and visit some of the most famous places in Italy like Pisa with its leaning tower, historical Florence, Siena, Lucca, San Gimignano and the beautiful Island of Elba - just to mention a few. At our school we offer a wide range of Cultural Courses, like those mentioned below.
"Color is the key to enter the enchanted of the rainbow, realm of imagination" Simona Provinciali.
Course in acrylic, watercolors and pastel - finding oneself involved in the plays of transparency, bursts of color, effects of light: this is the magic of watercolor painting. You will let yourself go to the stimuli that surrounding landscape offers, knowingly leaving behind theories, systems, and laws to give space to spontaneity.
"Let color go free to act with the paper, with the same consistency with which nature creates her results, with which minerals and crystals form, moss and algae grow, flowers develop and bloom under the ray of the sun" Emil Nolde (1867 - 1956)
Participants will have a way to create various works through an experience made possible by natural allies such as the environment, light and colors. The purpose of the course is to give an introduction of painting techniques and rules that govern their use.
There are various techniques, and from these you may choose closest to your temperament. The role of the teacher shall be to propose examples and analyze them along with enriching the information and giving suggestions and practical pointers. Our duty shall be that of creating the conditions for well being to reunite with that playful part of self that exists in each one of us.
