I organised paining class for my colleagues as a team building activity in Milan. It was great opportunity for them to go outside of the comfort zone and do something at the fresh air, within a walking distance from Duomo. Class was relaxing, recommend strongly!

Really fantastic experience. I stayed in the park with Martin and drawed for 3hour and finished my first outdoor painting in my life. Martin is full of passion and very patient. Learned a lot today. Thank you very much!

Martin was an excellent art teacher and a super kind person! I'm a beginner so he patiently walked me through the process and helped me paint a beautiful picture. It was fun and encouraging and makes me want to take more art classes when I go back home. It was a lovely way to spend a relaxing afternoon in Milan. Highly recommend!
