Bringing the Talent to you

A Taste of Tuscan Arts offers a holiday with a difference!

SUMMER ARTS SESSIONS (June to September)
SUMMER ARTS COURSES 19-26 July 2014

The summer Taste of Tuscan Arts course will be based around a visit to the Puccini Festival at Torre del Lago on Friday 25 July, when we will see Puccini’s opera, Madame Butterfly.

Music Workshop:
Guests will be given a detailed insight into the writing of this opera, with analysis, and there will be the opportunity for practical exercises – both music and drama.

Art Workshop:
Open - air classes will look at drawing skills and working with colour.
Here is an example of work produced by a beginner group. Classes will be adapted to fit with the skills/experience of guests.
Italian Workshop:
We have mother-tongue teachers who have much experience teaching Italian as a foreign language.
For those who have some knowledge of the language and want to work on conversation skills, there will be various role-play activities and of course the opportunity to speak Italian on the various trips, during meal times etc.
Beginners are also catered for.

Accommodation:
Villa Rosalena, Bagni di Lucca is one of the villas we use. Details can be found on their website – click on Villa Rosalena on the main page of the course details.
