28-june 4 & june 11-18, 2011
This workshop will be conducted by Patricia Antonucci and Barbara
Schaefer. We are two New York based artists who have traveled
and exhibited internationally, joining our creative forces to
offer you a week of exciting and energizing approaches to art.
As "insiders," we are offering an intriguing week of
unusual encounters with Roman artists, art galleries and meanderings
through Roman neighborhoods. Through backstreet views we will
visit contemporary artist's studios, with a firsthand intimate
glimpse of their work and lives.
Weaving our way through the ancient streets, churches and monuments
of Rome, where Bernini, Caravaggio, Michelangelo and Leonardo
left their mark of genius, we will juxtapose the old and new worlds,
journaling and eventually sharing our unique observations and
impressions. The week will culminate in an individual or collaborative
at the lovely Albergo Raphael, down the street from the magnificent
Piazza Navona, with its three Bernini fountains, we will breakfast
on the roof terrace in preparation for the day. Porta Portese,
dining in local trattorias and a day trip to mediaeval Viterbo
are a few of the activities on our agenda.
