PLEASE NOTE: THIS YEAR’S WORKSHOP IS CANCELED – It’s Official!!: Come To Venice Illustration Course 2010

Venice 2010
I am really excited to announce that illustration workshop in Venice, Italy is officially coming back this summer!It is a six day long workshop for illustrators and aspiring-to-be in any level, takes place in Venice, Italy. Yes, one of the most beautiful and magical cities in the world! And last two years I had been teaching, I just had a complete BLAST. So much fun.The Course is limited to about 15 students. I teach, advise and guide each student according to your level, interest and personality. It is a workshop with specific assignment(s), but there is also a lot of one-on-one personal advising.

I met some wonderful people over the past two years, but what was even better was that a lot of the students found friendship that would most probably last for a long time.

If you are interested, please read the details on the organizer Teatrio’s website and contact them for enrollment and questions.

You can also learn about last year’s workshop, and see the students’ fantastic works and photos on my blog. There are some comments from the happy students, so please check that out as well.

I hope to have another memorable summer, with you!, in this beautiful historic city.
