ABOUT US

IL PUNTO (The Point) is an international cultural center based in Volterra-Italy, started in 2018 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.

In 2018-2019 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 WORKSHOPS.

In 2020 due to the Covid-19 the activities have been limited by now. We had to postpone the regular Volterra-workshops (May & September) and also the Autumn-workshops (edition Germany) to 2021.
And the intended Watercolor Festival will hopefully happen in the following year. 

However, in the beginning of 2020 in Volterra we have successfully arranged couple of courses for children: Laboratorio di aquarello per bambini e ragazzi. More about this successful happening on the PREVIOUS WORKSHOPS.

And the week of watercolor adventure in Sweden Akvarellkurs on the beautiful island Dyrön, with 3 days courses for two groups was a big success too! Read & see more about the event on the PREVIOUS WORKSHOPS.
