Summer Art Courses:
Working directly with distinguished Florentine artists in studio, students studying the arts expand their knowledge and expertise through a combination of research, technical training and creative projects.

Exposure to libraries, museums and private collections enhance this work. Riaci‚Äôs teachers are all top artists and designers active in each artistic area of Italian art.

The small classes yield great results for each student, whose goal and purpose differ individually in his/her unique development. 

For all summer courses, we offer an intensive option, as well as private lessons, so that students with limited time can maximize their learning experience.
