Enrich your cultural landscape. 


Join us for one of our Master Workshops and journey with us into the creative future…

while you delve deeply into your artistic passion.



Our Master Workshops are a unique opportunity to work closely alongside an international selection of top artists and instructors who care deeply about the quality and abundance, vibrancy and vitality of works being generated in our culture, as well the innate importance of sharing the creative process.

Built upon the values of quality engagement, research, community-building, and excellence, our educational program is committed to a rigorous development of artist practices both in early and more established stages of their creative professional journeys.  

We are pleased to be able to share a variety of new Master Workshops this year:
