“I had the honour of attending the Easter retreat with Daniel Mirante, it was an incredible artistic, relational and spiritual experience.
I experienced a profound immersion in the traditional principles of the knowledge that comes to us from our predecessors, an alchemical journey from tradition to the new vision, the visionary one.

Daniel has been able to guide me with a lot of respect and delicacy in my artistic exploration. what I appreciated most about his guide was the love, passion and humility he puts into artistic practice, into his work. thanks to the sharing of his artistic career, his history and his being, he helped me to better understand how to be a conscious artist, motivating me to grow in this.

It was a pleasure to receive his teachings and his profound and wide knowledge in the symbolic / artistic / technical field. and thanks to his incredible vision! so much to learn.

This experience has marked an important point in my spiritual artistic journey, thanks Daniel Mirante!”


The workshop was amazing. It felt like stepping back in time, learning the ways of the old masters, including learning how to make our own paint.  I came away feeling inspired and confident and excited to apply the new techniques I had learned.

“From the first day Daniel was professional, friendly, warm and welcoming. Daniel knows what it means to lead by example which is part of what I believe makes him such an excellent teacher and human being. Daniel truly embodies what it means to lives an authentic and creative life. This is clearly reflected in his gentle, loving, funny and kind demeanour.

In addition to be an all around great guy, Daniel is an incredibly talented artist. An artist who possesses a vast knowledge and understanding of his craft. Daniel has a tremendous amount of patience and love for each of his students. I always felt Daniel shared his wisdom freely without holding back or keeping painting secrets just for himself. I felt that Daniel honestly wants each of his students to become the best artist they are capable of becoming.

Daniel is an extremely hard worker, to say the least. Daniel worked longer days then he should have, everyday. Daniel was the life force that carried our class through this intensive process. Incredibly, each student left the course with an absolutely incredible and meaningful piece of art.

I can say with full confidence you will leave Daniels workshop a better artist and likely a better human being. Bon’ Voyage!”


The class helped me discover a deep connection to the visionary world. It gives knowledge of an ancient, sacred approach to painting, and makes you feel in touch with the roots of art. Ainhoa and Daniel don’t just teach you, but guide, support and inspire for an intimate journey with your soul, where you become a creator of your own visionary world. I wish everyone has this experience of this artistic tribe of visionary art.

“Learning from Daniel Mirante is to learn from a true alchemist of paint, a teacher of skill and soul. My two weeks as his student over the first Easter seminar were filled with inspiration, instruction and laughter. Daniel shared his deep knowledge of pigments and mediums as well as the symbology of multiple mythological and sacred traditions.

He was very perceptive regarding the needs of each student, knowing when to push and when to encourage. He provided clear materials and explanations, and prepared us for our main pieces with some incrementally challenging exercises. I felt supported yet free to experiment, whether in shaping initial ideas or in finding an inspiration for style/colour choices.

He was present as a human being as well as as a teacher, holding a welcoming and focussed space throughout. I laughed a lot, but felt I could cry as well – and so create work that felt truly meaningful.”


Having Daniel Mirante as a Visionary Art teacher was an amazing experience. On all levels. He is a huge source of knowledge about the ingredients of traditional paints and expert in how to prepare all kinds of magic paints himself. He will make sure each and every student gets the alchemy of it. He is captivated by symbolism, archetypes, myths, ancient stories and wisdom and passes that fascination on gracefully. He’s always generously willing to share all he knows (and that’s a lot!). What struck me most is his guidance in painting our own visions, always interested in the narrative of the painted vision, making sure that what is told through the painting corresponds to the artist’s inner call. He teaches with tons of enthusiasm, care, knowledge and a huge amount of humor. He’s heartfully involved in the process of each student and provides framework and challenges both so that everyone can grow and carry on painting on his own after the course. His dedication to his job eormous. One of the most soulfull teachers I ever met. Go study with him!

Daniel is an academically and technically in-depth teacher who brings the beauty of the Mischtechnik to life on solid practical foundations with inspired spiritual creativity. The background of art history that he brings to his classes shows the depth of the technique, and this alongside his personal journey into the alchemy of tempera grassa brings a very special sort of magic to his teachings. He has really helped begin my journey into the Visionary style of painting.

Pushing me to attempt more than I thought possible with my painting, I made huge leaps in my perception of what I believed I was capable of as an artist. The workshop challenged us to think big, to pursue themes of epic proportions and attempt to bring the formless Divine onto a two-dimensional canvas. It challenged us to see our work as having narrative potential, to examine what stories our souls are seeking to share, and to understand art’s mythic power throughout history.
