Gold leaf painting is a technique used by the most famous painters of the middle ages, such as Giotto.
Meet your private, experienced art teacher in his charming atelier located near Palazzo Pitti, and let him tell you all about this painting technique, still used today.
After a basic introduction and some recommendations, each member of your family will work on their own creation. Choose a model, and 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! Nevertheless, it remains a highly interesting and fun-filled hands-on workshop that everyone in your family will love.
At the end of this 2,5-hour artistic workshop, you will leave the atelier with your own copy of an Italian masterpiece.
