I would like to edit the visual aspect of the menu of the website I'm working on: http://youcandrawportraits.net63.net/

I would like to make the menu more visible, that is changing the background color of the menu, with and without the hover.

Is there any way to edit the style of the menu?

yes, you can do so using CSS. To do so, go to wp-dashboard > Appearance > Editor and open style.css (opened by default). Add the following code, that should explain itself, and provide some examples you can finetune and tweak:

#menu {
	color: black;
	background: pink;

#menu li a {
	color: green;
	background: white;

#menu li.current_page_item a,
#menu li.current_page_item a:visited {
	color: yellow;
	background: blue;

#menu li a:hover {
	color: red;
	background: black;
