“En plein air” Impressionists in the Dolomites

Painter for a day in Trentino

Put a white canvas on an easel and let yourself be transported by the emotion of seeing the Dolomites before you. Learn the techniques of painting in the open air using natural colours and with the help of the artist, Fabrizia Maines.

Participants learn how to fix a canvas to a wooden frame and create colours using natural pigments like herbs and spices.
Painting has an enormous impact on our minds, bringing tranquillity and wellbeing, improving concentration, and reducing stress.
Along with the satisfaction of completing your work of art, we will also enjoy a tasty snack together with tempting treats from the best Trentino cooking tradition.
