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.
During 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 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” is postponed to 2022.
And the intended Watercolor Festival will hopefully happen in the following year.
However, in the beginning of 2020 we have successfully arranged couple of courses for children in Volterra: Laboratorio di aquarello per bambini e ragazzi.
And a week of watercolor adventure in Sweden on the beautiful island of Dyrön, with 3 days courses for two groups was a big success too! Read & see more about tit on PREVIOUS EVENTS.
