What you'll do

There is not much travelling going on at the moment so let’s be sofa travelers and pretend we are in front of the Dome in Florence. We open our bag take out colours and a few sheets of paper, when everything is arranged and ready we look up at the Dome and start to figure out how to put it down on paper.

You don't need a fancy watercolour kit to get started.
A few colours or using coffee or red wine as your paint
is super fun and gives a fantastic result.

I’ll guide you step by step as we start with doing a light outline of the dome and then joining colours and tones. I'll be next to you during the whole session with useful tips on composition, color mixing, light and shade etc.

The course is for all levels.
Perfect for beginners and no prior experience is need to create something unique and beautiful right away.

Don't hesitate to contact me if you don't find the time slot or date in the calendar that you are looking for.

Hello!
I’m Betty broadcasting from Florence, where I’m running two off-line experiences.
Enjoy taking people around in the center and stop painting some of my favourite spots together.

This time I’ll like to go world-wide and discover what you are up to on the other side of the globe.

I am a Danish full-time artist living in Florence since 1998.
I have a master degree in textile design and work wise I am moving between fashion and fine art. Colours that's what my life is all about - I’m always surrounded by colours. An activity that goes on for more than 20 wonderful years.

Lovely way to spend an afternoon. Betty is a great teacher and provides lots of explanation, pictures, and videos, to make it as close to seeing the dome in person as possible.

I arranged the painting class for my parents, they absolutely loved it. Betty was really kind and invited me to join at the end. I loved her stories and photos she shared about living in Florence.

It was a really great experience. It was only me and my boyfriend who joined the experience, so we had a private lesson. Betty is really patient and explains everything very clear. Was had great time and it was so nice to hear all the stories about Florence

I truly enjoyed taking the class a second time to work on the skills even more and was so happy to see how I was able to try new things with the paints and Betty gave me lots of great advice on how to adjust when I was struggling with the shape and look of my dome. I really loved having a break in my day to truly immerse myself in a relaxed, stress-free, fun way and very creative way. Such a truly enjoyable experience!

Thank you so much Betty for the beautiful class! I am not very artistic and I was able to follow with Betty's instruction to make a beautiful art piece. I learned so many new techniques that I can't wait to try on my own. Betty is a great storyteller and goes at your pace so you never fall behind. This class felt very family friendly and I would recommend this for anyone looking for a fun activity to do on their own, with friends, family, or even a team event. I highly recommend this class! Thank you Betty!!

Such a fun and relaxing time. I’m by no means an artist, but it was so fun to experiment painting with wine and coffee! Thanks for a great morning
