    What an amazing experience!
    Lisa_H, July 2023
    This was an amazing experience. Our art work came out great. We are all so honored to have learned from a true master! Making our own paint from scratch was a highlight!! We all want to return and take another class!!

    Fabulous experience with Maestro Abele and his assistant in beautiful Bellagio on the lawn of Villa Melzi! We haven’t painted since we were kids but Abele made it fun and gave us tips (or even saved some mistakes) throughout the session. We both left very happy and excited with our artwork. Thank you!
    We had never before...

    We had never before painted. Abele Vadacca (the maestro) was a great and patient teacher, and we learned a number of things about watercolor painting. But mostly fun and relaxing! Francesca, Abele’s assistant was very helpful with the logistics and overseeing our painting. Watercolor painting of the lake and surrounding mountains in the beautiful Il Giardini di Melzi. Well worth it. A highlight of our trip.
