Cineto Romano (near Rome)


We invite you to participate in the Plein-air course in a gorgeous authentic Italian location - Cineto Romano. This little town is located in the mountains - a perfect place to escape the heat of August!


The students of this course may choose a technique for their Plein-air practice between two options: oil painting or watercolor.


Watercolor technique:

Space, air, fog, dew, and plant life, soft and incandescent luminescence - all afford this beautiful medium a chance to gently touch paper surface allowing it to remain veiled by the artist's brush and shine through simultaneously. Plein air watercolor is an exploration and adventure, especially when together with you we will attempt to paint the virgin beauty of Italian mornings, afternoons and sunsets.​

Tuition cost for 3 weeks: 800 euro
