In a traditional Italian village tucked high in the light-drenched landscape, The Abruzzi Mountain Workshop offers a creative, spiritual home for students, groups and independent artists.
Designed for artists at any level, each Workshop is a week-long immersion into a particular art form—from Painting and Drawing to Sculpture, Fresco, Mural, Encaustic or Collage.
The Abruzzi Mountain Workshop was conceived in 1992, when artist and teacher Patricia Antonucci arrived in Anversa while seeking the town where her grandfather once lived. A native New Yorker, Patricia had long dreamed of starting an art school in Italy. She became captivated by the reflected light of the limestone cliffs, whose silvery glow provided a startling clarity, intensifying colors, bringing the world to brilliant life.
