What you'll do

We will meet next to the Dome and from there go to our location where we’ll spend three hours getting into the splendid world of colours and tones that watercolours are all about.

I'll show you the fundamentals of watercolour painting as we paint some of Florence's most iconic and beautiful sights together. Watercolour is perfect for beginners and no prior experience is needed to create something beautiful.

If it’s your first time with watercolours we’ll start doing a few exercises to figure out what watercolours are about, how to use them and create your own little spectrum of colors.
If you are already in touch with watercolours we’ll start right away getting the image down on paper and enjoy the thousands tones of colours.

I'll be next to you during the whole session with useful tips on composition, color mixing, light and shade etc.

The course is for all levels, both beginners and more experienced. My way of teaching is very individual so we'll start from your level and step by step progress from there.

This is another experience that I’m running through Airbnb:

Where you'll be

The Watercolour class will take place at the Library Oblate which is next to the Dome and from there we'll paint the cupule of the Dome. At the moment the library is closed so our location will be in other spots in the center of Florence.

Betty was a fantastic teacher, so patient, knowledgeable, and thoughtful! I had never done any watercolor painting before, and she taught me the basic techniques and tricks, and I ended up with a one-of-a-kind beautiful memory of the Florence Duomo. Such a unique and fun way to experience Florence and learn something new! I highly recommend this experience!!
