We are delighted to organise this 5-day workshop with Italian master decorative painting artist Caterina Manisco who will be teaching the Art of Grotesca using traditional techniques.  Caterina will share her know-how and techniques that she acquired not only during her training with renowned masters but also during years of working in the multitude of prestigious commissioned works all over Europe and internationally (principally at the Vatican Museum).  

Focus of this workshop will be on painting a beautiful multi-colored Grotesca panel on canvas using egg tempera and pigment powder. 
Egg tempera is an ancient medium that has been used to create so many masterpieces over the centuries.  As you work on your beautiful panel, you will be adding an elegant addition to your portfolio.
