For the summer of 2013 in Rome, we have students from the following countries joining us: USA, UK, Canada, Australia, China, Colombia, United Arab Emirates, and Turkey. It's a great opportunity for them paint in the Eternal City and to learn about each others' cultures, in the spirit of international understanding.
Anthony Eyton, a member of our Hon. Board, is being featured in The Royal Academy magazine. The Royal Academy magazine wrote an article on his work celebrating both his birthday & his upcoming show.
The artwork of Yuki Kasahari, a 2011 Rome Art Program alumni, is being featured in a Tokyo magazine in March. She is doing a solo show to coincide with the article on her paintings.
