Best, Lynn
Two Week Intensive Study in Fabriano Italy

   Dates: June 15-29, 2009

   Class size:  10

   Registration deadline:  April 1, 2009

Pyramid Atlantic Art Center presents "Paper, Print and Book" led by Lynn Sures in conjunction with Giorgio Pellegrini of the Museum of Paper and Watermark, Fabriano, Italy.  The course will offer students two weeks of intensive study at the Museum with time to enjoy the beautiful Marche region.  Traditional Italian book arts topics covered will be papermaking, watermark-making, intaglio printmaking, and binding.  Instruction will be given by noted Italian masters in these techniques, with language interpretation provided by instructor Lynn Sures.  Field trips include such medieval cities as Assisi and Gubbio, as well as natural landmarks.  This is an opportunity to immerse yourself in the arts and culture of Italy, in a charming, historic city and region renowned for both-and off the beaten tourist path. 

Course Description
The course will offer students an opportunity to study for two weeks in the city of Fabriano, Italy.  Fabriano is warm and welcoming to American visitors.  Papermaking in the tradition of the Italians, including line and chiaroscuro watermarks, will be offered with master papermaker Luigi Mecella in the museum papermill.  Included will be a lecture by Annarita Librari, master of the chiaroscuro watermark.  Instruction in bookbinding with Giuseppe Baldinelli will take place in the museum's bindery, and traditional intaglio techniques will be offered by Roberto Stelluti in the museum's printmaking studio. The course will also include a lecture on the history of Italian papermaking by Franco Mariani, the director of the Institute of Graphic Arts in Urbino and scholar of Italian papermaking history.  Trips to Assisi to see the Basilica of Saint Francis, to a working bindery in Gubbio, to Raphael's home of Urbino, and an excursion to the Grottoes of Frassasi,
 the Conero national park and Adriatic seashore -all near Fabriano- will complete the your immersion in the cultural heritage of this historic region of Italy.  
Please note that participation in this course includes a considerable amount of walking in steep hill towns, and physical exertion is required in the classwork itself.

Cost of $3,000.00 includes tuition and most materials, 4-star hotel with full breakfast in historic center of city, transportation on field trips--does not include transportation from the US to Fabriano, or travel insurance.
