Connecting with nature through art
An engaging experience that will make you walk, observe and draw.
Explore the beautiful Mugello countryside in the company of an illustrator and an environmental guide,
to learn how to observe, recognize and record the typical Tuscan fauna and flora by drawing it.
An exclusive experience, out of the touristic places, with a profound naturalistic meaning.
- Visit a picturesque village of medieval origin in the heart of Mugello
- Explore the typical Tuscan countryside off the crowded tourist itineraries
- Learn some basic art elements to improve your drawing techniques
- Small group
We will visit a picturesque village of medieval origin in the heart of Mugello in Tuscany, and we will immerse ourselves
in the surrounding nature, we will walk on country roads stopping to observe and draw the
typical flora that makes the Tuscan landscape unique.
Equipped with a notebook, pencils and brushes, we will try to understand more deeply the nature that surrounds us to translate it into images.
The time it takes to create an illustrated image is very different from the time it takes to take a photographic snapshot. In this extended process, which passes through the search for models, observation and drawing, we can get closer to nature, fully understand it, appreciate its complexity and enhance its beauty.
The environmental guide will help you notice the details that characterize a plant, a leaf, an animal or landscape, and the illustrator will also guide beginners in bringing these to paper, leaving you with a memory to take home and treasure.
