On a wet weekend what could be better than gathering with friends to learn something about painting? Morena from Borgo degli Artisti offered her services over 2 afternoons to teach some local children at the studio in Ponte a Serraglio.
On the first day the children learned to mix colours, and about the colour spectrum.
On the second day the children learned about shading, and set about to paint a Christmas scene.
Some of the paintings will be framed and displayed in the gallery at Christmas time. I hope you will all come to Borgo degli Artisti at Ponte a Serraglio to see them.
Perhaps you can buy a painting before the artist becomes famous.
thanks so much, Debra!!! I really enjoyed it with the children…..they are so responsive and quick to learn……will have other days in the future and not only for children.
They seemed to having a lot of fun. I think it should be a regular thing.
What a nice initiative! Congrats to Morena and to Debra for registering it!
Morena organised the class, I just took photos.
I LOVE that last snowman! The teacher very obviously shares her enthusiasm–the results are those bold paintings! I wanna do that!
I thought the paintings were excellent. I think there should be classes for all ages.
That first shot with the 20 or so paintings laid out made me catch my breath! So bold! I hope you’re able to go to here classes once you return in January.
It is a great initiative as children need to develop skills from a young age. Congratulations to all! Great to have so many talented people in Bagni di Lucca, a “land of poets and artists”
I thought all the paintings were great….talented children!
Super post Deb. I love this and I absolutely love their smart blue smocks. In fact I’d love one myself.
Perhaps if I put one on I could paint too.
