Over 20 Years of Music & Art on the Amalfi Coast
Founded in 1995, the Amalfi Coast Music & Arts Festival is produced by the Center of Musical Studies of Washington, D.C. in conjunction with Artis International of Naples, Italy. The festival is based in the town of Maiori, one of the jewels of the Amalfi Coast. In addition to its wide-range of Institute offerings in music and art, the Festival features a month of concerts each summer throughout the magnificent area of the Amalfi Coast, in the area, including the excavations of Pompeii, the world-famous vistas of Ravello, where Wagner composed Parisfal, the incomparable Greek temples at Paestum, the magical isle of Capri, and more.
Loose and Fresh
Most of the time students will work en plein air, where paintings are conceived to be accomplished within one session. The goal will be to capture the essence of landscapes and townscapes in a loose, fresh approach. We will also learn to gather information to work later in the studio with sketches and photo references.
"Our vision is of a community of artists learning from each other and creating wonder together, inspired and enriched by the tradition of beauty in all things Italian."
