I will be organizing ongoing fresco painting courses and private lessons in Florence, Italy. Students will learn about one of the most durable mediums for painting: fresco. The full process will be explored including: the preparation of the support, colors and cartoon. Taking advantage of the unique abundance of fresco painting in Florence, site visits to various chapels, churches and museums will enlighten the student to the aesthetic possibilities offered by this wonderful medium.

I am very pleased to share that my painting “The Young Architect” has been included in the #93 Eros Gaze publication of Poets Artists Magazine. It is a wonderful mix of literary and visual metaphor created by Didi Menendez. Print issues of the Eros Gaze are available via Blurb at the following link here.
