Dedalo is a working studio and gallery which provides a relaxed environment that is ideal to learn a new skill, explore an interest or refine your creative techniques.

Whether you are a beginner or already have experience in the arts, you will be constantly challenged to develop your artistic skills while enjoying a truly creative and memorable experience enriched by a schedule of events and activities including field trips to nearby museums and attractions.

With class sizes that average 4-6 students, everyone receives the full attention of the teacher who encourages experimental learning throughout the course.
