“My participation in Odd Nerdrums workshops at TIAC in Florence proved to be an amazing experience. It was very inspirational and educational to witness such a master at work. TIAC has provided artists from many countries a platform to meet other artists from all around the world. My sincere gratitude to the staff at TIAC for their fantastic work.”



“During the workshop, I found a sort of magic atmosphere, it’s been a great experience to meet Odd Nerdrum in person, he is an inspiration for me and for my art. I’m happy ‘cause I had the possibility to meet a lot of people from all over the world, was an honor to paint and share my art with all of them. I would like to thank all of you for believing in art and Artists, you make a great job! Was a privilege to meet people like you, I really feel part of your community”.

"I was incredibly lucky to have attended the master workshop with Golucho and Odd Nerdrum at TIAC. The workshops exceeded all of my hopes and expectations. The teachers were really generous with their time giving critiques, demos, portfolio reviews providing the ultimate educational experience. The unique aspect of the workshop I felt was the environment. And not because it's Florence, but because I never imagined I would meet so many incredible artists from so many different cultures and countries under one roof. It was gratifying, insightful and humbling. What made the workshop exponentially rich and enjoyable was the TIAC team who were very welcoming, friendly and cared sincerely for every attendee. Most importantly, I felt a part of the team and a supportive community rather as if I was attending a workshop. The entire atmosphere was really magical and fulfilling for me. And I'm certain it was more than a workshop for everyone else. Hopefully, I get the opportunity to attend again. TIAC workshops are the way to go."
