All-inclusive Inspiring creative painting week in Tuscany.

Studying Painting with Ancient Techniques in Florence is an important experience as the town was the cradle of art in the Middle Ages and Renaissance and the great masters such as Giotto, Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci worked here to create their masterpieces. The workshop is based on the “Book of Art” by Cennino Cennini (1370-1440) and introduces the paintings techniques in use from 1300 to 1500, through the copy of ancient paintings to learn how to use egg tempera and gold leaf.

Students that already have a good understanding of these techniques will create an individual improvement plan together with the teacher.

MATERIAL SUPPLIED: All materials necessary for the course. Some more experienced painters may wish to bring some of their own brushes and paints out of preference.

WHAT IS EGG TEMPERA?
Egg tempera is a very stable type of paint composed of pigments mixed with a water-soluble binder (normally a sticky substance like egg yolks). This type of paint dries very quickly and lasts over time. There are art works painted in egg tempera that date back more than 2000 years ago. The egg tempera was the most used pictorial method until after 1500, when it was replaced by oil colors.

WHAT IS GOLD LEAF?
Gold leaf is a thin sheet of hammered gold used for gilding, an artisan process that must be done by hand and has remained unchanged for hundreds of years. The gold leaf is traditionally used to decorate statues, paintings, frames, jewels and architectural elements.

TOUR LEADER & CERTIFICATED LOCAL GUIDES:
