      • Hands-on: Paint your own fresco in the private workshop of a local Florentine master. Completing a piece with water-based pigments while the plaster surface remained damp was considered the ultimate challenge for a Renaissance painter, making it one of the most revered forms of Western art.
      • Making history: As you work, you'll learn about the centuries-long history of the fresco and see some of the most iconic Florentine examples. Your docent (Latin for teacher) takes you through the steps of preparing the plaster surface, creating and transferring a drawing, and applying the paint.
      • Taking it home: Although this fascinating private experience is fun for all ages and requires no previous skill or knowledge, it does require care and attention. You'll get all the help you need, and leave with a terra cotta tile that you painted yourself, carefully wrapped until it's completely dry.
