Meet your private, experienced art teacher and enjoy this fun-filled hands-on workshop as a family by creating your own fresco painting.
First, let them explain the beauty and challenges of fresco painting, a technique used by so many painters of the past, including Michelangelo, the Italian artist who painted the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.
Then, choose the design you want to reproduce on the stone. Each member of your family will be able to choose his or her favorite design and follow the clear instructions of the art teacher to create a fabulous fresco. You’ll see that painting on wet limestone and sand is quite a challenge!
Once the coating is applied, it will take a few minutes to dry so that both the pigments and the colors will have penetrated the stone. Each member of your family will leave this private workshop with a self-made fresco à la Michelangelo.
