I so enjoyed this workshop...it was the best I have attended. Fabio is a wonderful teacher, gives each participant individual time and has a great sense of humour. His use of colour is second to none and I will travel long distances to attend another workshop offered by this talented man.
I found his workshop so much fun, non intimidating and easy to follow. Fabio is charming, sweet and a brilliant artist and teacher. His paintings are gorgeous!! I can't wait to attend another one!
Fabio Cembranelli makes a master piece out of a big mess, as I discovered when, at my request, he corrected my painting. He is not afraid to give it all. He shares his knowledge freely. It is mesmerizing to see his hand float from water, paint, and paper, back and forth. I can hardly wait for the next workshop. The whole group of attendees was friendly, helpful, and like family. Elena was great help. The Canadians were amazing.
Taking a four day creative watercolor workshop with Fabio Cembranelli was an very enlightening experience. He is a very gifted Brazilian artist who makes you feel at home with him the person and in the watercolor medium. He paints extremely loose, and magic just appears before your eyes as he works with warm and cool, positive and negative, in a very spontaneous manner. Fabio will definitely introduce you to a new way of seeing form and relationship of image to the watercolor paper.

Thanks so much for all the work you did in organizing the workshop with Fabio. I had a great time and really learn’t a lot from him. He is a very kind and humble man who seems to really enjoy teaching and sharing his knowledge. I love his style of painting and was so glad that he came to Oakville, when I saw he was coming I jumped at the chance.

I LOVED Fabio's workshop. THANK YOU SO MUCH for bringing him here!!! What an honour to meet and work with him!!! He is the kindest, most unassuming instructor I have ever studded under. So willing to share and demonstrate all he knows. The greatest thing I learned was that you do not need days to do a good painting!!! Just focus, concentrate, work your colours all at once and you will be genuinely rewarded!!! THANK YOU again!!!
I am very grateful that I did participate in the watercolour course. ...It was an honour to watch him create paintings from the beginning to the end. It is rare that an artist would do this especially under an hour and half. It was a challenge in painting flowers in a close up view since I do mostly acrylic landscape paintings. It was great that Fabio provided us a wide range of "assignments" (close up, landscape, lines, photos). Also, it was a rewarding experience for me to mingle with others taking the same course. It brought back fond memories of being with my colleagues back in university.
