Faculty Information:
Sam paints in a post-impressionist realist style expressing his enthusiasm for the artistic use of light and dark values. He is dedicated in producing original portraits and paintings of American landscapes and the Italian countryside and particularly loves the challenge of "chasing the light" by capturing landscapes en plein air.

Art classes in landscape, still life and portraiture are designed for the serious beginner, intermediate and advanced artist and are available at his studio. Sam's art instruction centers on developing the sound drawing skills and painting techniques needed to create compelling paintings. Individual attention and critiques are given.

Other Activities:
Cooking Arts Holidays, Food, Wine and Cultural Adventures in Italy. Non-painting guests are welcome and encouraged to come. Guests may enjoy a wide choice of site seeing programs and cooking lessons.

Facility Information:
Sam shares his passion for classical drawing and painting techniques by providing art instruction. His popular international workshops have drawn beginners to advanced artists from the US, Canada, Europe and Caribbean. Art Workshops are held in Tuscany, Amalfi, for landscape painting; portrait drawing and painting; land and seascape painting in New England on Cape Cod, MA. These trips are designed for small groups of plein air artists (no more than 12) working in a creative, supportive atmosphere. Constructive, individual critiques and instruction are available as part of each day's painting session.
