Introducing...Dr. Alan Pascuzzi and Fresco Painting Pt. 2

Saturday March 26,  12-2 PM
Virtually join the DSA for this amazing opportunity to create an authentic buon fresco with instruction and demonstration from Dr. Alan Pascuzzi. The DSA is excited to have worked with Dr. Alan to provide 20 kits with authentic Italian supplies, mailed to us straight from Italy. Participants will be recreating an Italian fresco by Giotto. While kits are limited, those interested in learning and watching how fresco is made can still participate as a viewer. A list of materials is made available below for those interested in gathering their own supplies for this experience. 

Registration with a kit: $50 - Only 17 available kits
Registrants can pick up their supplies at the DSA (48 High Street, Dayton) on Friday, March 18th or Saturday, March 19th from 12 PM to 5 PM. 

Registration as a viewer: $5 

In addition to being a painter, sculptor and art history professor, Dr. Alan moved from New York to Italy where he teaches the fresco techniques of the Renaissance masters to whomever is willing to learn. See his story here in this 11 min. clip from LdM NEWS (2013):
