Fresco Painting Curriculum Subjects

What is a Personalized Fresco Painting Curriculum?

At the beginning and as you progress, it is next to impossible to know or guess which subjects are the most viable to you. To define a sequence (order) they should be studied in is even harder! We Will Help!
(for example – it is impossible to understand why the colors are “muddy” without first learning when the plaster is ready to be painted on – in other words if you get “muddy” colors that means that you have missed one of the plastering lessons).
