Landscape Master Class in Italy Italian landscape holds a place of honor in Western artistic history. Come participate in the tradition with experienced plein air instructor trained in the Russian Academic method. Improve your powers of observation and add to your skill sets in the Bergamo hills for five days of classes and practice. Perceiving warms and cools, organizing the masses and prioritizing the details will be discussed.

Classes meet mornings, 9:00 - 13:00. Afternoons participants may paint alongside the instructor, work independently, or explore the fertile region.

Participants will live in the Villa Vitalba, an historic family estate outside Bergamo, which includes a Romanesque church, the remains of a monastery, a vineyard and lovely grounds. This all within a modest but pretty village, where one can stroll for good bread, to visit any of five historic churches, or take the bus into Bergamo. Meals (included) are taken at the estate’s own restaurant which includes their wines, a wood-fired pizza oven and fresh local fruits and vegetables.
