Seminars en plein air in Rome and in the countryside
The natural extension of the drawing from the real is to go out in the open and draw and paint en plein air. The Seminar “Drawing and Painting in Rome in the footsteps of the Grand Tour” aims to portray famous and even lesser known points of Rome, as they did in the past centuries the travellers of the Grand Tour. (the course is in English; see details in “Drawing and Painting Courses”). Seminars en plein air are also organized in the countryside on a residential basis, leaning on a farm. The seminars last from three to seven days.
