Drawing and painting lessons

I am a professional painter and fine art restorer for more than ten years. My areas of expertise include several techniques: classical drawing, oil painting, tempera painting and watercolour.  I currently offer private lessons to students (of all ages) who want to improve on their painting and drawing abilities.  During the course, I will give you the tools to succeed and provide constructive feedback.  My lessons are taught in Italian and English, and will help you reach your fullest potential.
