“A jewel in the crown of art workshops,” wrote one of our former participants. Studio Italia is among our top-quality painting workshops in Italy offered every June and October since 1997. These art classes in Tuscany are open to artists of all levels, from beginners to professionals.

Studio Italia,  a nine-night art retreat in Tuscany, is a unique experience that combines plein air painting, art history, and art theory lectures, touring and gourmet cuisine in the most beautiful area in Tuscany. Nine full days devoted to art classes in the medium of your choice: oils, acrylics, watercolors, etc. A true art retreat in Italy! Mornings are dedicated to art instruction at the lodge, afternoons to lighter coaching in a beautiful village in Tuscany (Cortona, Montepulciano, Pienza, etc.).  Evenings are dedicated to discussions around gourmet meals and wine. We spend one day in Florence visiting the Uffizi Museum and some of the city’s most important art sites.

You are free to follow our program or to work at your own pace.  Why not working on sketches for the first few days, and then proceed to more accomplished works?  Lectures for all, instruction for most and personal coaching for those who wish, are the most important foundations of our painting workshops in Tuscany. Studio Italia is so popular that we have participants who have joined us four times already.

Our small groups allow us to offer personalized instruction and an intimate environment that fosters creativity and fun. Moreover, our painting workshops include art history/theory lectures that aim to help participants find their personal artistic path. Our art classes in Tuscany are also suitable for the artist’s partner who desires to enjoy the Italian landscape and famous cuisine and wines. Accompanying partners are part of all the group’s expeditions to nearby medieval towns and are welcome to attend our stimulating art lectures.

The price of our painting vacation in Italy is CAD 3,275  or the equivalent in US$ at the time of full payment (around US$ 2,580 as of July 2019).
