ART INCONTRO NAPOLI is an 18 day program of excursions and art workshops in Naples exploring the region through its visual, artisan and written culture. Set primarily on the island of Procida, the program provides a rare opportunity to develop ideas and skills while being immersed in the landscape, language and history of the Bay of Naples.
Procida combines a fascinating blend of ancient farming traditions and the cultures of a seafaring people. Gardens are filled with lemon trees and pastel colour houses resting against tufa rock make the island’s architecture one of the most distinctive in the region.
ART INCONTRO NAPOLI is flexible, relaxed and designed to foster your own creative interests. The itinerary includes seven days in Naples itself, exploring the city’s world class museums, dynamic contemporary art spaces and celebrated archaeological sites at Pompeii and the Campi Flegrei.
The ART INCONTRO NAPOLI program begins with a bookmaking workshop where everyone will create a handmade journal to document their experiences. The program includes a series of mixed media and watercolour painting sessions, providing opportunities to experiment and develop skills. These art sessions flexible to suit different levels of experience and approaches.
To inspire you further, the art workshops in Naples are complemented by visits to a selection of contemporary art spaces and artist’s studios.
Our home on Procida is the fishing village of Corricella, found in a natural amphitheatre by the sea at the foot of an ancient abbey. Our family hotel offers spacious rooms with French doors opening onto a terrace overlooking the sea. For the last six days of the program we will be staying in a boutique hotel, situated in one of the most beautiful and culturally vibrant areas of old Naples.
