|Questions and Answers
We have been organizing artist and cooking workshops and we concentrate our efforts in Tuscany, Italy and in Provence, France.
1. How long has the business been operating and how did it start?
We have been in business starting with 2001. After casual conversation with artists, I determined I liked to do art and I liked organizational work.
2. What is your company's mission?
Our mission is to have as many workshops as possible, to allow those that can afford trips to Europe to experience a unique approach to their art, mainly to see and experience the outstanding landscapes of Italy and to taste the outstanding cuisine of Italy.
3. What does your company specialize in?
We specialize in giving art instruction with excellent instructors, Italian hands on food preparation and complete guide service for the Province of Tuscany.
4. Who is the founder or owner of the company and briefly describe his/her past activities?
The founder of the company is William Sperling, living in Seattle, WA. 30 years in the service business of Hotels in New York, well traveled throughout most of Europe. Schooled in fine arts at University of Oregon and studied under various Northwest artists. I am single and practice my art talents and organizational skills constantly.
5. What is your most popular travel package and why?
We have a two week workshops that takes place in May, early June and again in September into middle of October. We avoid the summer heat as much as possible. We not only give art instructions in every media but have a cooking school and photography school. We stipulate 2 week courses as we sincerely believe that to come across the Atlantic for any less time does not give the client enough time to appreciate the exquist country of Italy.
6. What is the best compliment you received from a client?
"When's your next workshop?.......and this whole scene is paradise!!"
