The, I will escort you on the spot (chosen on the moment) to paint with the watercolors. Here you will create your personal artwork. I will provide you all the items you need.

My name is Nicola Tenderini I'm a Venetian artist who run a small shop in the heart of the historical town (few steps from Accademia Bridge), where I exhibit my many artworks. I am specialized in the watercolors art. I started to paint when I was a child and then I keep on doing every day. I got my master’s degree at the “Accademia di Belle Arti” in Venice and then I participated to many decorations works in important Venetian palaces and monuments as the Fenice Theater, Baur Hotel and many others. I want to share my passion for the fine arts and watercolors with you. I wish would bring through the city to find some dreamy and hidden spots to paint!
