Lucca is a historical town with structures dating back to Ancient Rome.
Dynamic compositions present themselves at every turn. Then there is the
beautiful Serchio river valley within walking distance. Peering beyond the
walls of Lucca, one takes into view the exciting hills surrounding the town.
Piercing the sky at the distant horizon are the famous marble mountains that
have supplied the master sculptors of the past and present. Experience the
town that inspired Puccini, Boccherini, Catalani and Ruskin to name a few.

Professor Del Monte encourages all to be prolific. Demonstrations, critiques
and dialogue will be available in assisting each student. Lectures and demon-
strations will be on drawing, design, picture composition, figure construction,
head construction, perspective and landscape. Professor Del Monte will explore
various media-pencil, vine charcoal, watercolor, gouache, pastel and oil paint.
Materials list will be forwarded along with other pertinent information
upon receipt of your registration fee and form. Bring along your favorite media.
All art supplies are available at the art stores in Lucca. Prof. Del Monte founded
Creative Art Studies in 1969 with the assistance of the late Mayor of Lucca,
Dr. Giovanni Martinelli. Prof. Del Monte, now retired, has taught in New York City,
New Jersey, Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, private schools, and in Italy.
His latest position in 2002 was with St. Vincent College of Latrobe, PA. He lectures
and demonstrates and is a juror for various art organizations and schools. He has also
been featured in the American Artist magazine, and has had two books published
about his life and work: "Truth: An Inspired Artists Journey" by Ed Zelinsky and
" Master Artist, Life and Works of John R. Del Monte" by Ray Black.
