We remember a sunny June workshop trip to Fontanile, a town in Italy. The freshmen of Site-specific art got to know the scales and techniques of wall painting in practice!
We would like to thank the co-passenger of the project – Rasa Kasperienė – who warmly welcomed us!
You can read a more detailed description of the event in English in Rasa Kasperienė's post:
I'm hrilled to share an incredible artistic from Vilniaus dailės akademija journey that unfolded in the picturesque Fontanile Piedmont region of Italy! For 7 awe-inspiring days, three talented art students with prof. Ieva Skauronė embarked on a mesmerizing project, transforming the city walls into a breathtaking masterpiece.
I hope that my house helped them to share their creative ideas. As they immersed themselves in the local culture, the bonds of friendship grew stronger, creating an atmosphere of inspiration and support. It's truly remarkable how art can bring people together, creating lifelong friendships and memories that will be cherished forever
