We have an entire sky within us, our fiery strength and heavenly origins: Luna which symbolises the continuous motion of soul and body, Mars speed and Saturn slowness, the Sun God, Jupiter law, Mercury reason, and Venus Humanity. – Marsilio Ficino, letter to Lorenzo The Magnificent.

Full day painting workshop. During this very enjoyable day you will be taken on a roller-coaster artistic journey through the planets, exploring personal imagery, the sacred and secular artwork of different cultures and the importance of the imagination according to the ideas of the Renaissance Florentine’s scholar Marsilio Ficino. No artistic experience is necessary to attend.
