Gold Leaf Painting


Gold Leaf Painting - evolution L



Discover the art of gold leaf painting, an old technique used by masters such as Giotto, and enjoy a fun-filled hands-on workshop in the heart of Florence.



Gold leaf painting is a technique that was used by the most famous painters of the middle ages, such as Giotto. Our Gold Leaf Painting hands-on workshop is an incredible opportunity to learn about this art and dive into a world of gold!

After meeting our private art teacher in his charming atelier located near Palazzo Pitti, start painting one of the most beautiful paintings you will ever make.

Each member of your family will be able to work on his or her own creation. All you need to do is choose a model, and follow the instructions of your art teacher to recreate the selected model using paint and… gold leaves.

This art is trickier than it looks as the gold leaves are so thin that they are very fragile and can blow away as you exhale! But it nevertheless remains a highly interesting and fun-filled hands-on workshop that everyone in your family will love.

Needless to say that at the end of this 2,5 hour course, you will leave the workshop with your own copy of an Italian masterpiece.

Our Gold Leaf Painting is truly the best way to understand how painters of the middle ages would paint what we now consider as being true masterpieces.
