International School of Painting, Drawing, and Sculpture

  1. About

The International School of Painting, Drawing, and Sculpture in Umbria, Italy offers intensive studio programs for developing painters and sculptors from around the world. Distinguished artists teach and critique, and visiting artists and scholars lecture; students can work full-time in their studios and classes, and take weekly trips to study and draw from the great art of Italy.

The Artist’s Residency program in Montecastello provides the ideal combination of seclusion and community in a setting of truly inspirational beauty. Artists can work intensively and independently for three or more weeks in a supportive and intimate environment. The Residence Program also enables students to continue to work and progress independently.

May and September are the best months to visit Umbria. The weather is perfect, the air is clear: in May there are flowers everywhere, and the fields are green; in September the light and the colors of the landscape and sky are rich and fantastic. It is also the best time for our trips to Rome and Florence, since there are not as many tourists as there are in the summer months.

Independent Residencies may also be taken during the School sessions in the summer. Residents may take advantage of classes as they choose, and request faculty critiques.

This program is perfect for faculty on sabbatical. A final resident’s exhibition in the school’s gallery, which will be attended by local artists and people from the surrounding area, concludes the program.
