“My daughter spent two days with Arianna learning the technique of etching. It was the highlight of her trip! She thoroughly enjoyed working with Arianna and she created some beautiful artwork to take home with her. I am not much of a shopper and did not buy anything else in Venice, but I have a weakness for beautiful and original art and bought a few pieces of Arianna’s artwork to enjoy here at home. They will always remind me of our wonderful trip to Venice. Thank you Arianna.”

“On my recent visit to Venice I booked an etching & aquatint workshop with Arianna. A wonderfully informative and unique experience. If you are planning a visit to Venice and enjoy being creative – Arianna’s workshops are not to be missed!
