Astronomy with our senses Painting with wine, stars and wine tasting

Surrounded by nature, we will enjoy the night sky, and in a constant dialogue between art and the sky, we will discover the secrets of the technique for painting with wine.
Brushstrokes, peeks at the sky and telescopic observations with a wine tasting.

The activity is divided into the following parts:

1- Local tasting: (Optional*) Tasting of DO Penedès wine and cava, must and a snack of local products.
2- Observation of the sky with the naked eye: If time permits, with the help of a laser pointer and a sky chart we will learn to locate the stars and constellations visible that night.
3- Observation with a telescope: With the telescope of 28 cm opening of the dome, we will observe Venus and its phase.
4- Painting with wine: With the artist Marta Arañó, painting workshop with wine. You don't need to know how to draw. Each visitor will perform a work under his guidance.
