Program Description

The secular park of‭ ‬Villa Corniolo is divided into two areas‭, ‬the front is a‭ ‬bright garden‭, ‬with cut meadows‭, ‬hedges of roses and citrus plants‭, ‬while behind the villa the forest grows more wild‭, ‬shady‭, ‬with spontaneous herbs‭, ‬and bamboo reeds‭, ‬too‭.‬ What happens in these places‭? ‬How‭ ‬do they reveal themselves to our eyes‭, ‬what are the characteristics that predispose order and chaos‭? ‬What are‭ ‬the perceptual and compositional differences‭ ‬of two places that cross one another while remaining so distinct‭?‬ During the workshop‭ ‬we will immerse in a almost‭ ‬“meditative”‭ ‬observation of the animal and vegetable‭ ‬life that inhabits the park‭, ‬the shapes‭, ‬colors and light of these places‭, ‬and then‭ ‬we will reproduce them on the map drawing on plain air‭, ‬preparing the appropriate colours‭ ‬and experimenting with techniques suitable for the two different environments‭.‬
