Summer Lens Art Study in Italy

Spend the Summer Shooting in Tuscany




Alto Studio Tuscany is a New York non-profit visual arts study program based in Lucca that will allow students of the world to learn photography and filmmaking from leaders in the field while using Italy’s culture and beauty as their inspiration.

A Summer program focusing on the visual arts of still photography and the moving image, Alto Studio’s program features one-on-one instruction for an intimate group limited to twenty students.  With classes, critiques, screenings and travel to nearby destinations, students are completely immersed in Italian culture, enabling them to be inspired by surroundings of timeless beauty.

Housing and travel within Italy is provided.

Courses include digital Video, Photography, Italian Cinema History, and Audio for the Moving image.

In addition to the inspiration of living and working in Italy, students will have the opportunity to learn from accomplished working professionals in relevant fields. Alto Studio’s faculty have been nominated for Academy Awards, have had work screened on BBC, The Discovery Channel, History Channel, and NatGeo.  Additionally, three visiting artists will serve as mentors at various stages of the program.

Upon the completion of the program, a group show/opening and a night of screenings of all Alto Studio Work will take place in Lucca.  Following the student’s return to the United States, the same show will be exhibited in New York.
