Each morning brings a new adventure, as we head out in our van to a nearby Umbrian village. This two week class is centered on investigating the place we are in through words, pattern and image, and is tailored to the interests of the group. Local Italian food, wine, travel to nearby villages, housing at an historic Capuchin monastery, and the class are all included.
On these excursions students will have a session with me: sketching, writing, calligraphy and watercolor. You also have time to wander: there are linens, pottery, galleries, cafes and lovely unexpected discoveries. We have seen the paper maker, the bell maker, local artists and musicians.
One of my favorite places is Tarquinia- both because it is by the sea, and also has a wonderful museum of Etruscan art and the famous Tarot Sculpture Garden (below).
In the afternoon we return for lunch at the monastery, and to the workshop space in the chapel for questions, critique and further investigations. The monastery inspires a contemplative approach to our work, to noticing and observation.
The materials list is simple and will fit in a carry-on.
Come with us for two weeks of making art, living the Italian way. Return home home full of life!
All levels of experience are welcome.
$3850 for two weeks.
