Sculpture Workshop in Florence, Italy with Simon Kogan; Sept. 9 - 20

I have the privilege of studying sculpture with Simon Kogan and twelve other students in Florence Italy for ten days this month. Each day will allow time in the studio from 9 am until 2 pm, after which we will make use of the city’s vast artistic treasures for continued instruction and learning. Our studio classes will be held at the Accademia D'Arte, the prestigious Art School in Florence.

The itinerary includes visits to museums and churches (including the Bargello, Basilica of Santa Maria del Santo Spirito, Brancacci Chapel, and Museo dell’Opera del Duomo) to see works by Marino Marini, Michelangelo, Francesco Messina, and Masaccio–some of my favorites!

Keep an eye on my Facebook and Twitter pages to see daily photos and updates from this trip. After a year of intense sculpting, this trip will be renewing and fulfilling, and definitely inspire me further as a sculptor. What better place to be inspired?
