Stephen Ninnes and Leticia Francini started an Italian foundation for the furthering of the old arts that may disappear from this earth if they are not supported. Including and of the elements of the old arts. For example, Making wood panels for painting in the traditional methods. Painting in the renaissance methods, Mask Making from Leather, To name just a few.
As part of this we run weekly art classes. That have become much more than a simple art lesson. As a community has grown from this that extends far beyond the boundaries of our buildings. Where not only do people get the opportunity to paint but also to share, learn and cherish time with others in the environment we have created.
