Fresco Painting

Fresco Art

Autumn 2023 Year 4

By Mim, Jesse, Theo and Brooke


Leonardo da Vinci painted The Last Supper for a monastery dining hall in Milan, Italy,  between 1495 and 1498.

It is a fresco (painting on plaster).

It shows Jesus eating with his apostles before one of them betrays him.

Leonardo experimented with a new fresco technique. He used oil paint on dry plaster so he could make changes. It wasn’t a complete success but he was a great experimenter and scientist!

Painting on wet plaster is trickier but makes the art more permanent.

We had a go, depicting what represents our own country: Paddington, The London Eye, Tea, The Caribbean     and Fish and Chips!
