Siena, Italy: Art / Design / Music Lab & Residency

Siena, Italy: Art / Design / Music Lab & Residency.

From the Duomo of Florence to the Piazza del Campo in Siena, Tuscany is rich in culture and history you can only experience firsthand. Discover unforgettable Tuscany at the AIP villa right outside of Siena, full of rolling hills, natural landscapes, and some of the most outstanding artworks in the world.

Years of study can begin to reveal the magnitude of Italian contributions to the world of art and design. We visit Italy each year to ignite our passion for the living culture of Italy. Examine history, while experiencing the cuisine and wine of Tuscany. Our villa serves farm to table cuisine each night with traditional recipes. Our home base is for making, relaxing and energizing your creative pursuits. Travel with the group on several day trips to Florence, Siena, and Rome to see and experience more. Sign up for art and design courses, or as an artist in residence.
