Service Description

I am looking forward to these workshops. This is the only workshop currently being offered by me in Italy, in the hillside area of Lucca. I hope you will join us in this beautiful location. The workshop is scheduled for September 6-16th 2023 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 6 days of intense painting with Carmelo in the studio. The enrollment is limited and is first come, first served. We require a $1000 deposit upon registration. This is applied to the total cost of the workshop. Your reservation is confirmed by your deposit. A second balance of $2550 will be due on July 15th, 2023, and the third balance must be due by August 15th, 2023. The full cost of the course is $6100. Details and payment terms are listed under ITALY WORKSHOPS/ POLICIES. A PDF contract and agreement will be sent to you to be signed and returned once you apply. This 17th Century villa called CASA BERTI and the 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 seven students and me. You will receive six days of one-on-one instructions with 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 may use the studio, roam around or visit other cities, such as Florence, Pisa, Barga, or even Pietrasanta.
