Painting courses - the enchantment of Lake Como

Jerry Fresia

"Few artists have captured the enchantment of Lake Como. Jerry has perfectly succeeded and has given to me, someone who has known and loved this lake my entire life, an entirely new emotion."

We teach, exhibit, and share with others the activity of art. Our work is based upon a simple idea – articulated nicely by Robert Henri – which is this: art is the province of every human being. This thought is central to all our projects. Each of us has the capacity to create, to feel profoundly, and to express who we are.

We focus on painting and we do this through our art school, videos, exhibitions, and writing. We live and work on Lake Como, Italy. Our painting workshops take place in Lenno while our gallery is located in Menaggio. Both are in the central area of the lake. Our painting workshops have been on-going since 2004 and we have drawn students from around the world – 32 countries, from every continent except Antartica, to be precise.

FRESIA is a husband-wife team whose goal is to encourage the enjoyment of art and to promote the spontaneity and visual pleasure of seeing the world around us in a sensual and enchanting way. Our hope is that we can bring both romance and the radical challenge of Impressionism circa 1880 Paris into our contemporary setting.
