For the first time, AAC is offering a fantastic opportunity to explore both contemporary and historic Venice, and Ravenna. We will explore Italy’s rich mosaic history, see some of the earliest Venetian mosaics, visit one of the premiere manufacturers of traditional mosaic materials and participate in a 2-day mosaic workshop in Ravenna. In Venice you will also get a chance to see the best of ground- breaking contemporary art from around the world at the Venice Biennale. This year’s festival, VIVA ARTE VIVA, expresses “a passion for art and the state of the artist” and is curated by Christine Macel, the chief curator of the Centre Pompidou. At the Ravenna Mosaic School you will learn the fundamentals of working with smalti with Luciana Noratti, one of the master educators of the traditional Ravenna method. The trip includes a tour of the Orsony Foundry and the Jewish Ghetto in Venice, the islands of Torcello and Murano, and the opportunity to experience the full range of the Ravenna Mosaic Festival, where the whole city hosts events and exhibitions dedicated to contemporary mosaic art.


Register by March 14th for participation in the Ravenna workshop.
