|The Abruzzi Mountain Workshop/drawing and painting in Italy|
The Abruzzi Mountain Workshop has expanded to new destinations. Last year’s Summer Intensive on the island of Ischia offered a week of creative exploration inspired by the landscape and energy of island life—from the colorful Mediterranean coastline to stunning mountain views.
In 2016, our fifteenth year of travels—"in viaggio"— we'll be returning to Ischia for a one-week Painting/Mixed Media Intensive from September 23 - 30. In addition, we'll be traveling to the verdant mountains of Puerto Rico for two media workshops.
Mornings in Ischia will be spent working from our studio or at one of the island's superb outdoor locations…along cobbled streets, in shaded piazzas or atop Mediterranean promontories. Afternoons will be available for island excursions and partaking of the lovely island spas.
Students will come away with a new appreciation for the colors, textures and lifeforms of this unique and historic land.
Two six-day, mixed-media workshops held at the acclaimed Casa Grande Mountain Retreat, a lovingly restored coffee plantation near San Juan. In this tropical paradise, cradled beneath green mountain vistas, we welcome both beginning and more experienced artists. Participants will work in studio as well as in the botanical gardens, using collage, drawing and painting and also site-specific installation as a part of the process.
Students at this unique workshop will enjoy tranquil, balconied rooms along with hammocks, a fresh water swimming pool, three elegant meals daily plus two working trips to the seaside.
As in all AMW's programs, we engage both the beginner and the more experienced artist. Please join instructors Patricia Antonucci and Barbara Schaefer as we continue our exploration of the world's most entrancing landscapes, their color and light.
