Join master-painter Elizabeth Marruffo as she guides you through the traditional painting techniques she learnt while studying in Florence. From preparing compositions and transferring images, to working with gouache and acrylic paints this eight week course provides students with a deep understanding of the way a traditional artist worked.

This term we will continue to focus on the life and work of the Italian artist, Giovanna Garzoni. Born in 1600, she became well known for highly prized miniatures and paintings of the natural world. She is seen by many as the Queen Bee of her time.

Selected Garzoni paintings of stunning flower arrangements will be examined in close up detail to gain an understanding of her line work and the way she mastered her glazing technique. From this A3 study of her work we will get out our tiny miniature painting tools to paint an A6 copy of our A3 painting. Our precious miniatures will be finished off in ornate protective gold frames.

Our small class size of only 8, means that each student will get the feedback and attention they need in order to achieve their best outcome.

Saturday midday session runs at 11.30am – 1.00pm from the 30th of April until the 18th of June

This course is recommended for ages 10+
