  1. Laura

    Had a great time painting with Laura! I do have quite a bit of painting experience, but I’ve never worked with oils. I think she broke down color mixing and the process easy enough for a beginner, but it was still challenging for . I was thrilled with my final painting! Definitely recommend this class if you enjoy painting!

  2. Shelly

    Gorgerous little studio in the heart of Florence, I had an amazing day of sculpting where I learned so much! The artists are incredible and I had one on one instruction and advice for the day, I would love to go back and study there for longer! I highly recommend for anyone interested in learning the tips and tricks from incredible artists

  3. Clare Barlow

    Laura and Frank are two of the kindest and talented people. They were generous with the skill sharing and both encouraged and developed my daughters art techniques. At 19 and 17 it can at times be hard to keep them happy. But these lovely people managed to do so. I just wish we had known about this sooner. Two words to sum up absolutely marvellous.

  4. Journeyer
