Welcome to the world of Crea Italia!

mariIn the heart of Italy, the cradle of European culture, Crea Italia offers painting workshops to both advanced and beginning hobbyists. With his long professional experience as a lecturer at top range Dutch art academies and the Technical University of Delft, artist Mari Hofman, founder of Crea Italia, is the perfect teacher and coach for culture-loving summer students.

In the months of June/July the course’s location is in Tuscany, where the vibe of the renaissance is present in every village and town. The village of Micciano, located in the charming Val-di-Cecina, not far from the medieval city of Volterra, hosts Mari and his students in agriturismo “Le Selvole”: a pleasant and well equipped small scale country hotel in a quiet and pastoral setting.
