The content of each session will depend on the needs and interests of the participants. In each art worshop, sculptors will choose their favorite materials:it can be clay, soft wood, or hard stone.
MIXED MEDIA ART CLASSES – drawing, painting, sculpting, stained classes. This class is designed to provide each student the opportunity in two weeks to try different way of expressing themselves. Creating with different materials is a way to know and understand your own abilities and discover hidden talents; every day is a new day in this unique workshop! It can be painting the ambience of Italy and the small traditional villages high on the hills, sculpting an italian model….
ADDITIONAL STUDIES can be added depending on the interest of the students.- woodcarving art workshops – anatomy studying in 3-dimensions – clay figures and live models – & life drawing classes for example. Our workshops are designed for both beginners and advanced sculptors.
Villa d’Arte offers an artists’ residency program designed to encourage the creative, intellectual and personal growth of emerging and established visual artists. While in residence, all artists will share in an established community of interaction, conceptual development and intense production of work. This Artists’ Residency Program is designed to foster creative, intellectual and personal growth for emerging and established visual artists. There are no specific educational qualifications for entry into the program. While in residence, artists will be encouraged to pursue their own work. The residency is designed to allow artists to take risks and pursue new projects and ideas, free from every day pressures. The residency is for those artists desiring to advance their work or creating a new body of work. Residents are encouraged to pursue a multidisciplinary approach toward their work.
