I am looking forward to these workshops. The only workshops currently being offered by me are in Italy, in the hillside area of Lucca. I hope you will join us in this beautiful location. Two workshops will be held in October 2022. The first workshop is scheduled for October 1st to the 10th. The second workshop is from October 13th to the 22nd. There are 7 spaces available at this workshop. Companions are welcome at a separate cost, but this does not include access to the workshop. The cost of the workshop is $6100 for 9 days and 10 nights with meals, accommodation, excursions and 5 days of intense painting with Carmelo in the studio. The enrollment is limited and is first come, first served. We require a $1100 deposit upon registration. This is applied to the total cost of the workshop. Your reservation is confirmed by your deposit. A second balance of $2500 will be due on July 15th, 2022, and the third balance must be due by August 15th, 2022. The full cost of the course is $6100. Details and payment terms are listed under ITALY WORKSHOPS. This 17th Century villa called CASA BERTI and farmhouse where you will be staying is located on a hillside in the middle of olive groves and will be the location of Carmelo's 2022 blossoms workshop. CASA BERTI is a 17th century Tuscan estate located above the historic Renaissance city of Lucca. The villa, with its modern amenities, has been transformed while still retaining its old world Italian charm. With temperatures typically in the mid to upper 70s, October is a great time to visit Italy because the high season crowds have thinned out. You can spend 10 nights and 9 days painting, relaxing, and eating delicious food prepared by the renowned local chef. We will dine under the stars (weather permitting). The studio is an old farmhouse transformed into a cozy space with large windows giving us north light and a spectacular view of the hillside and olive trees. It will easily accommodate 7 students and me. For 5 consecutive days ( Monday to Friday) there will be one-on-one instruction as well as daily demonstrations and critiques. My teaching style reflects my belief that painting should be enjoyable and relaxing with a good dose of hard work. There will be plenty of time for socializing, exploring the local area, and, of course, painting! For the remainder of the days there, you are free to use the studio, roam around or visit other cities, such as Florence, Pisa, Barga or even Pietrasanta.
There will be no refunds due to the restricted time slots available, but you can pass on your time slot to another friend.
