Since Off the Beaten Strada LLC was born in 2008, I’ve dreamed of facilitating trips for artists. It’s no secret that Italy has inspired artists for literally thousands of years, and helping today’s artists fulfill their own dreams of creating art where Italy’s master artists once painted and sculpted truly fills me with joy.
So each time we partner with someone new, someone with a passion for art – be it watercolor, oil, plein air, collage or sculpture – I’m excited all over again, because I know first-hand how Italy affects those with a creative soul.
This spring and early summer we’re hosting a watercolor workshop extraordinaire and an incredible collage retreat – with more artist trips lined up for the fall and on into 2017. Participants are so eager they’re already asking about what to pack! I don’t blame them. They know they’re in for a treat. But I know something they don’t yet know. I know that they’re in for an awe-inspiring, unforgettable, experience of a lifetime in bella italia.
