a week of art and beauty in an atmosphere that has inspired artists for centuries!
An Artistic Experience that Ignites Your Senses, Inspires Your Mind, and Fills Your Heart !
Have you always dreamed of exploring your artistic abilities amidst the natural and cultural beauty of Florence, Italy, but just aren’t sure how to make it happen? Imagine spending several days painting, visiting famous museums, and eating delectable food in one of the most historically and artistically rich regions of the world.
This once in a lifetime experience enables you to embrace this magnificent city of art and learn from a master instructor - no matter if you're a novice or a skilled artist. All of Artensity's workshops are taught by working and award-winning artists with experience instructing all levels.
Artensity prides itself on creating workshops that fully immerse students in the beauty and culture of Italy. All of the details will be handled for you ... including on-site workshops, unique excursions, and one of a kind dining experiences. All you need to do is bring a sense of adventure and love for learning.
Our goal is to make your trip to Italy a wonderful experience. From the hotels we choose to the places we go, we want you to have an authentic Italian experience. The hotels are chosen with a criteria for location, friendliness, and cleaniness. We personally know the owners so we also know your needs will be met at every opportunity.
Museums and day trips are chosen with a balance of the obvious "can't miss" sites and the off-the-beaten path experience so you go away with a taste of what it's like to live like a local. We won't consume your trip with standing in long lines. We book tickets ahead of time and are careful to choose guides that are knowledgeable and fun.
Your painting portion of your experience is largely in the hands of the instructor (chosen for their work and ability to teach), but we will be right there standing by to meet any need that arises and solve any issues with art supplies or equipment.
So whether you find yourself surrounded by the art of Florence or the hills of Fiesole, your heart and mind will be nourished.
We hope you'll join us in our adventure, as every painter needs to experience Florence at least once in a lifetime.
