We have our Art in the right place!
ARTuscany offers educational holidays in Italy, including short breaks, tailor made to suit your interests, including a wide range of en plein air and hands-on art workshops in painting, drawing, sculpture, mosaics and glass work, ceramics and pottery as well as the reproduction of Etruscan jewellery.
Learn from scratch or improve upon your existing ability and experience.
Enjoy the experience of learning encouraged by warm hospitality, authentic Tuscan cuisine and guided tours to some of Tuscany's most prestigious medieval towns. (Not to mention glorious weather!)
We are located on the borders between southern Tuscany and Umbria within close proximity to Lake Trasimeno.
The areas of Cortona – Castiglion Fiorentino, form a typical Tuscan and Vasarian landscape with villages built around a castle not far from a Romanesque Church and surrounded by cypress trees. Blessed with countless art and historical treasures by famous artists such as Vasari, Luca Signorelli and Piero della Francesca, it is an inspirational location with stunning views and Mediterranean light to capture the imagination and enrich the spirit.
Our programme is designed with non Italians in mind to encourage an understanding of the full spectrum of Italian artistry with its unique historical significance.
We will arrange all the details for you to help ensure a vacation that you will remember forever. We offer a different way to travel.
Our courses are fully guided and well organized tours, which combine cultural elements with recreational activities. Join us and be our guest as we introduce you to a whole new world!
The workshops have a practical and professional focus but cater for all levels of ability from absolute beginners to competent artists. Wherever possible we can structure a course based on individual or specific group's interests.
Our policy is to maintain small classes so that teachers can identify the requirements of each individual while still working as a group.
If you are an art professional you may choose our Continuing Education & Masters Programme, offering the opportunity to be creative while applying traditional techniques.
We run art courses all year and liase with Art Schools, Universities, Art Academies and The International Study Center "Baldassarre Castiglione" in the areas of Arezzo, Florence, Perugia and Rome.
Each programme includes discussions and topical lectures linked to cultural excursions for both artistic and recreational interest.
A short trip by train provides access to the beauty of Florence, Rome, Perugia and Siena, a unique experience with exposure to great works of art, particularly The Renaissance.
In order to help students participate in Art courses we also offer support services for Accommodation and Italian Language.
For non painting partners and family we are able to arrange interesting activities and entertainment to suit most interests.
