Watercolour en plein air

Laura, through a journey into the wonderful world of art history, will tell you the secrets of the fascinating watercolor technique. A plein air experience, discovering the most suggestive corners of Arezzo, thanks to which you can draw your first watercolor.


Watercolour painting has a longstanding and illustrious history, but it was during the Renaissance that this technique became extremely important. Famous artists started to use watercolours in preparatory studies for their major works, in particular for big frescos. Thanks to this fantastic journey through the world of art history, you will appreciate not only the works of the great masters of the Italian Renaissance, but you will also be able to create your own watercolour paintings.


Weather permitting, Laura will organize a beautiful outdoor experience and will accompany you to the discovery of the most suggestive corners of Arezzo. In the event of bad weather, the experience will be carried out at Vasari Cafè located under the Logge Vasari in Piazza Grande. In case of bad weather the experience will be carried out directly at Laura’s Atelier or in the holiday farm where you are residing.
