coffee break, after workshop drinks and art materials
I will welcome you at my art studio in via Sant’Agostino 51 with a coffee and I’ll tell you the background of this historic corner of Pietrasanta. I will explain the technique of Human Plaster Casting starting with the basis and the history and tell you about my interpretation and personal experience.
This workshop will show you how Art is one way to understand yourself and others trough the concept that beauty lives in every person. After this short introduction we will cast a self portrait in plaster as a real 3D experience. In this session you can choose to cast either your face, your hand or foot.
Following the workshop we’ll do a v ery short writing session to translate your emotions into words to capture the moment.
Waiting for the cast to dry we´ll go t o the main piazza together, where the most important sculptors and artist in the world had their talks and drinks, including Michelangelo.
Back at the studio you’ll have time to visit the workplace and sculpture garden of established artists like Misja Rasmussen and Matteo Lo Greco before taking home your masterpiece.

All art supplies:
oil, water, mirrors, gold leaves, plaster gauze, brush, wipes to clean you from the plaster
