The Watercolor Course at Palazzo Dandolo

Matilde Dolcetti, Venetian, watercolourist, printmaker and book-artist, welcomes all participants in the ‘piano nobile’ of her family palazzo on the Grand Canal: Palazzo Dandolo Parisi. The course is offered to watercolor enthusiasts, both experienced and beginners. Students will work side by side with the Scuola’s resident artists. The course is divided into four blocks of five classes each. Students may attend the complete program, one or more blocks of five classes, or just individual classes. The program includes studies of views of the Grand Canal and other subjects. Media are watercolor, mixed techniques and bookbinding.

Our Teaching Methods

Over 50 years of activity at the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica we have constantly evolved our didactic practice, thanks to the experience and exchange between guest artists from all over the world and artists from the Scuola, who in turn have been invited to teach in various International art institutions. The programs are structured in such a way as to give a solid foundation to beginners, while providing greater skills and awareness for more advanced students. While the courses have been taught for many years, there is constant renewal, embracing new topics and syllabi.
Our calendar offers a full program of activities with attention to the different languages of expression. ​​Artists are helped to develop their ideas through well-thought through projects. Often participants are in Venice for a limited period of time and hence not able to attend an entire course or series of classes; our calendar is designed to offer flexibility, by indicating the day by day schedule. Even a single afternoon of laboratory booked at the last minute may turn into a very productive and rewarding afternoon of art and creativity!
