2017 SUMMER WORKSHOP IN ORVIETO

Thank you for your interest in the 2017 summer workshop in Orvieto, Italy. The response has been overwhelming and very encouraging.

The program will be held from July 17th through July 28th. Classes will be held in the historic center of Orvieto in the shadow of its magnificent duomo. This two week studio program will include housing for participants and daily breakfast. In addition there will be lectures and visits to significant sites of artistic interest.

This inaugural session of the INTERNATIONAL CENTER FOR THE STUDY OF PAINTING will be held in conjunction with an exhibition of paintings by VINCENT DESIDERIO and BERNARDO SICILIANO on view in the Palazzo del Capitano in the piazza del Popolo of Orvieto. 

The focus of the workshop will span the area between theory and execution. Participants will develop a deeper awareness of the choices they make regarding technique.They will develop a clearer understanding of the historical origins and precedence of their own aspirations as painters and be able to place their explorations within the context of today’s horizon of expectations.

Participants will have the opportunity to work closely with both Vincent desiderio and Bernardo Siciliano in separate morning and afternoon sessions. each session will be conducted daily from 9:00am to 1:00pm and 2:00pm to 6:00pm with a break for lunch. Demonstrations and lectures will accompany our studio work which will be based on the figure.
