Andrea is the man!!!

I have known him since I was twelve, not only is he an incredible teacher but a wonderful person. I learned so much thanks to him and we have developed a great friendship. I will never forget my first few lessons with Andrea, he takes you through the basics and expands from there. I only have good things to say and whether you are a beginner or a pro, I am sure there is something Andrea can teach you!

I strongly recommend Andrea Leanza's professional courses!

Andrea does amazing and beautiful work. I have silicone mask and prosthetics from him and they are display worthy. Absolutely amazing craftsmanship and attention to detail. Highly recommended.

I had the pleasure of working with Andrea on the set of "The First King", and I found in him not only a professional and a virtuoso of his sector, but above all a boy who knew how to transform manual skills and passion into art, without having never lost that game component that gives life and substance to his (and our) profession.

He constantly tries to improve himself by learning and experimenting with increasingly advanced techniques and materials, with incredible results.

He plays with the spectator putting him in the condition of not being able to distinguish the true from the false: his creations are one step away from taking life in front of our eyes.
