"...Carey’s course breathed life and contemporary relevance into the art of the fresco whilst imparting a great wealth of knowledge and sensitivity towards its more exacting techniques. "
"...Carey’s course is packed to the rafters with knowledge, thought, technique and inspiration. The week itself was incredibly fulfilling but perhaps more significantly, what followed was an ongoing appreciation of fresco and its’ production and a real desire to delve into art at a much richer more resonating level."
