IL PUNTO (The Point) is an international cultural center based in Volterra-Italy, started in 2017 by the visual artist & creative director Majid Modir.
A platform where art meets education, in a large sense!
We plan various activities such as workshops, seminars, competitions and festivals … the WATERCOLOR SCHOOL is the very first step.
During 2017-2019 we successfully arranged 10 workshops in Italy, Sweden and The Nederlands in collaboration with Urban Sketchers , Volterra-Detroit Foundation and some other local culture organisations. You can read more about HOW IT STARTED on PREVIOUS EVENTS.
In 2020 due to the Covid-19 the activities have been limited. We had to postpone the regular Volterra-workshops (May & September) to September 2021, and also the planed “Europe Tour, 4 capitals in 4 weeks” was cancelled.
And the intended Watercolor Festival will hopefully happen in the following years.
However, in the beginning of 2020 right before the lockdown we have successfully arranged couple of courses for children of Volterra in collaboration with some local voluntary organisations (Laboratorio di aquarello per bambini e ragazzi in ARCI).
During 2021 we started slightly again some workshops with minimum number of participants due the pandemic, although with high quality and successful result.
