How the great masters painted

Welcome to our Historical Painting Workshop, where we invite you to embark on a captivating journey through the annals of art history. In this workshop, students have the unique opportunity to delve into the techniques and styles of the great Masters, including Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, and Caravaggio.

Our workshop is designed to cater to both beginners and advanced students alike. Beginners will be guided through the intricacies of historical painting, focusing on the meticulous details of selected masterpieces. Through careful observation and hands-on practice, they will learn fundamental techniques while gaining a deeper appreciation for the artistic legacy of the past.

For advanced students, our workshop offers the challenge of tackling more elaborate masterpieces from art history. With the guidance of experienced instructors, they will explore advanced painting techniques and refine their skills through the emulation of renowned works.

Moreover, our workshop recognizes the importance of studying not only the works of ancient Masters but also those of more recent artists. Students can choose to explore the impressionistic brushstrokes of Monet, the romanticism of the Pre-Raphaelites, or the emotive expressionism of Van Gogh. By studying a wide range of artists, students gain a comprehensive understanding of art history and develop a versatile skill set that transcends time periods and genres.
