Benefits: Artist Immersion Program allows you to live as an artist. This concentrated experience gives artists the time and space to deeply learn new skills and techniques for a lifetime. Throughout history, artists have traveled as a way to study the world. In this program, art is integrated into daily ritual and practice, connecting participants to culture, nature, food and learning. The days are pared down to beautiful meals with farm to table ingredients, cultural immersion and response through art making. We work to empower artists to develop self-confidence and sensitivity to the world around them.

Mission: Our artist residency program allows time for creation, relaxation and connection to a supportive and focused artist community. Set in the hillside of Tuscany, residents become immersed in Italian culture and the rich history of Italy. We invite you to live as an artist surrounded by a creative community. Self-directed projects of all disciplines are supported.
Artist residencies are independent experiences, where artists can work in studio space at the villa and interact with the larger group at meals, throughout the day and during travel. Artists can sign up to eat alongside the group or cook dinner at the villa independently. Artist residents are invited to travel with the group to historic locations once a week. Connect to nature by exploring the extensive park systems the villa resides in. Simplify your life and focus on your work. The villa functions as a studio space for residents at all times of day.
We began integrated learning experiences in 2012, in Italy, studying the landscape and architecture with painting and drawing. We continue to provide one of kind journeys to groups from around the world.
