An experience that surely will not be able to forget - indeed, they will be able to hang it in their home! The course includes the incision with the drypoint technique on plexiglas or drypoint on zinc. I will follow you in the choice of subjects, in the preparation of the drawings and during all the processing phases, from the initial study to the processing of the slab up to the final prints.

May you reflect on interesting times - workshop inside La Biennale di Venezia

Instead of a guided tour, you will collect and investigate information together using your senses, memories and experiences. In this way you will not only have a close-up look at the art while trying to interact with it, but you will also learn about the members of your group. How and what do others perceive? Does it work the same for me? How and what can art communicate? By guiding your way of interacting with art and others, you will gain a better understanding of both. On top of that you will learn how to use tools to perceive art that can be meaningful in the future.
