ACON 320 Fresco Painting and Restoration I: Study in Florence, Italy


The student will be introduced to all phases of the art of fresco painting by preparing a small fresco which can be transported. Students will learn the ancient technique of fresco by using original techniques such as the enlargement of a master drawing (student’s choice), mixing fresco mortar (intonaco), and the use of pigments for painting fresco. Each student will also make a sinopia (preliminary painting for fresco), and complete a small fresco to then be detached as an exercise in fresco conservation. This course is part of the Junior Year Abroad for Art and Materials Conservation majors at Lorenzo de’ Medici Institute in Florence, Italy.
