Artists for a day in the open air (En plein air)

Artists for a day in the open air (En plein air)

You don’t have to be painters to take home your own work of art. All you need is a canvas, an easel, some oil colours and a professional artist to lead you in this amazing experience. I will provide you all materials needed and I will be your artistic guide. I specialize in Art History and pictorial technique.
A city scape of a florentine piazza, or a view of Florence from the rose garden? We will decide together. We will talk not just about history, art and Renaissance. We will also talk about oil technique, colours, styles, tendencies, about the movement of Macchiaioli, italian painters, active in Tuscany who did much of their paintings outdoors or ”en plein air” as we will be doing together now.
In the morning we will arange our plein air workshop and we will begin our painting session. At noon we will take a light florentine lunch in a small typical ‘trattoria’. After this short break we will continue with the work. At the end we will take photos of your paintings which will be displayed in our Christmas art competition. You will be voting for ”The best landscape of The Year” and the winner will receive a bottle of very special Chianti wine. Cheers!
