Printmaking and visual arts-based inquiry with Arne Collen in Florence, Italy

Special announcement from Arne Collen:

MAY 3-18, 2010 in FLORENCE, ITALY
with Ron Pokrasso, David Hoptman, and Arne Collen


It is with great excitement that I am able to send you this special announcement of the forthcoming two week art workshop in Florence, Italy. After having taken this workshop under the apprenticeship of Santa Fe artist and printmaker Ron Pokrasso in 2006 and 2008, as well as artist and professional photographer David Hoptman, I am able to offer an opportunity to my students and colleagues to join us for this workshop in 2010. You will receive personal instruction from Ron in various means of printmaking, David in photoshop that is associated with printmaking, and myself in relating Ron and David’s instruction to methods of visual arts based inquiry. But the content of your two week workshop partly depends on your reasons for taking this workshop and its choices, which I detail after you read below the workshop description provided by Ron Pokrasso.
Teaming up with Ron and David is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for me, and I hope you as well, to be part of this workshop. Unfortunately, studio space and number of participants are limited. I expect this popular workshop to fill easily in the first quarter of 2010, as it did in past years. Therefore, if you can plan and budget to become part of it, please do. But read on and if seriously interested, consider acting as early as possible in the new year.
After reading the remainder of this special announcement, if you have a sincere interest, please contact both Ron Pokrasso ([email protected]) to secure your place via a deposit, and myself ([email protected]) to discuss which choice of participation best matches your needs and interests.

For more information, contact Ron Pokrasso, [email protected] or have a look at his website,
