Teaching and Laboratories
Young artists with CREA: “Learn about art and take it home”
Develop your skills, creativity and imagination with our fun-filled laboratories!
Our activities, based on introductory lessons and interactive work, focus on periods from our ancient past to more recent times.
“The roots of theater!” Decorate your Etruscan mask with your favorite colors, and once it is ready, it will be perfect for dressing up!
In the ancient world masks were an essential feature of theatrical representation. These masks allowed the actors to interpret various roles and to amplify their voices thanks to a wide mouth opening.
“Carpets of stone”! Imagine yourself in ancient Rome and choose a design from the floor or the walls of your room.
Mosaics embellished the rooms of Roman houses with their beautiful colors and decorative motifs. During the laboratory, we will reproduce sections of famous floor mosaics.
“Glory in the round!” Create your medallion with the impressed profile of a famous person or the emblem of a great city.
The medallions, derived from Roman coins, were for celebratory and commemorative purposes.
“Relive the Middle Ages!” Learn the rules of heraldic colors and create your shield with your personal symbols!
Students learn the international rules for heraldic colors, which at the time of the Crusades distinguished friend from foe. They will have the opportunity to paint their own personal emblems on shields and flags.
“Certified mail from the past!” Place your personal seal in sealing wax on your envelopes to make your letters unique!
The art of seals, so important in the Middle Ages as proof of association to an aristocratic family, is re-proposed using plaster cylinders and sealing wax. The teacher will explain the use of seals, starting with the Sumerians who used them for commerce, to the various forms used through history and up to the present day.
“Your memories in a journal!” Assemble the pages of your journal and bind it with precious and elegant Florentine paper.
Students will be able to create a personal journal, finely bound in Florentine paper, where they can jot down their thoughts and impressions of this truly unique experience.
