Watercolor at Palazzo Dandolo

Thursday 14 April 2022
10am – 5pm

“RETRO VERSO”, the ‘recto’ and the ‘verso’ of the sheet. Intensive 6-hour workshop with Matilde Dolcetti and Sergio Bigolin. Guest artist Loretta Cappanera

• Materials are not included in the fees
• Lunch break 1pm – 2pm

The term recto-verso originates from the use of ‘papyrus’, the first form of paper used for the creation of books in Egypt, Greece and Rome. By ‘recto-verso drawing’ we mean a sheet drawn on both sides. With Loretta’s in-depth experience in multiple forms of art and poetry (the … verso), the game will take shape in ‘our’ version of recto-verso: a drawing or a watercolor on thin paper, which, done on one side, shines through also on the other.
