Academy Course Description Fresco, a term which translates into “fresh” in Italian, is the revered art of painting on fast-drying and damp plaster with water based pigments.
This method was often considered the true test of an artist’s skill during the Renaissance period. This is especially so given its very technical nature in which one would need to finish on-time before the plaster dries in order to ensure uniform adhesion of the painted image on the wall. Our one-year hands-on Venetian Décor course program (6 month + 6 months) is designed to teach you the basic fresco techniques.
Recreating the very same time-consuming but deeply satisfying and highly rewarding procedures as used by artists such as the likes of Michelangelo and Raphael in painting what is considered the finest masterpieces for the Renaissance era, we will build your artistic skills, guiding you through the process of creating your very own stunning piece of fresco as can be seen throughout Venice. As we progress, you will gain a better understanding in the use of linear perspective and naturalistic figurative treatments in the creation of the Renaissance art.
