Art Holidays and Long-term courses

All you want to know about what we do, where we are and where you can stay

About us: core mission and values

Our programme is very highly rated. The studio has been visited by professional artists as well as people new to the practice of art

Progetto Ecate promotes the understanding and the practice of the fine arts, with a special consideration for printmaking. All our efforts are conveyed into creating a good selection of introductory and advanced classes and into providing a shared space for the enrichment and development of the individual student's work. Our extensive academic programme will invite you to develop your skills, expand your knowledge and explore those lesser known art techniques you may have never heard of before.

We offer high quality art instruction in a beautiful and inspiring environment. We provide tuition in Italian, English or French. Most art holidays in Italy are organised by Brits or Americans, whereas Progetto Ecate relies on a network of Italian professionals (teachers, drivers, landlords, chefs, guides) who can deliver a genuine dive into the Italian culture and lifestyle.

We offer English taught intensive courses in painting or printmaking and weekly sculpture or drawing en plain air lessons (...and if you speak some Italian, the choice will also include lectures, group critiques, tutorials and artist talks).
