Vita Institute for the Arts
The goal and ultimate mission of Vita is to breathe life into the artist through small community workshops and programs in places where culture and history stimulate the artist into visioning new ideas without restricting the experience by either a rigid format or an artificial grade structure.
Vita Institute offers learner-centered workshops and programs based on the idea of Novum Est–something new. These workshops and programs are led by nationally and internationally known artist-educators and offer self-motivated individualized programs of study within the structure of a small yet dynamic learning community.
Participants are encouraged to investigate their own vision of the world while developing skills with a purposeful inquiry and creative expression in locations both nationally and internationally. The Institute also encourages collaboration between visual artist, writers, musicians, thespians, filmmakers, poets, and photographers - collaborations that will expand and advance the dialogue between disciplines.

THE CHARACTER OF PLACE
A Unique Interdisciplinary Hands-On Professional Development Workshop in a charming Tuscan hill town
September 13 - 25, 2019
Spending some time in a new or foreign setting rejuvenates the senses and promotes an enhanced or heightened understanding of our work in the arts. Join us in the fabled walled Tuscan city of Lucca for an intensive workshop experience that uses the arts to explore how the idea of the character of place can advance an aesthetic narrative.
