Where you'll be

Arezzo è il luogo ideale per sperimentare la pittura ad affresco. Qui è dove Piero Della Francesca - uno dei maestri del Rinascimento italiano e genio della prospettiva lineare - dipinge "La storia della vera croce", un meraviglioso ciclo di affreschi. Questo artista ha trasferito i suoi studi di matematica e geometria alla pittura diventando il maestro della prospettiva lineare. Anno dopo anno questi affreschi attirano molti appassionati d'arte da tutto il mondo.

Laura is the BEST! I made the trip to Arezzo from Florence (just under an hour, so totally doable in one day). We first met up at Cattedrale dei Santi Pietro e Donato, where she showed me the frescos that she restored (!!!!!!). They were gorgeous. We made the Botticelli (from Birth of Venus) Venus. The process of making a fresco is pretty cool and relatively simple. It's the actual painting of the fresco that requires ability. I have zero artistic ability, and Laura made me feel confident and accomplished. :) She helped me understand the complexity of how frescos are made, how colors are mixed... I have a genuine appreciation of *all* frescos now. Laura is warm and personable. I had the fortune of meeting her family and they are lovely. She conveys her love of the art. She also helped me make my Botticelli Venus look really good. It's definitely going in a place of honor in my home. :D

This is it- THE FRESCO EXPERIENCE! Yes, it is 2 hours from Pisa but it is worth the trip. Laura is sweet, patient and very knowledgeable. I would gladly come back and do another workshop with her! I am not an artist by trade, but my husband is and we both were able to make incredible pieces that we will cherish forever. GRAZI MILANI LAURA!!!! I now have a new love for frescos and I hope to make more soon.

A wonderful day spent with Laura. Highly recommended for anyone interested in painting. We had a wonderful day with Laura. We visited the Arezzo Cathedral and learned about the art of fresco painting, also heard about her background as a fresco restorer. Back at her studio she showed us various ways of mixing paint for different materials. We prepped and painted our own frescos. A great lunch and coffee was provided in the cafe downstairs.
