Capturing A Sense of Place

st francis smaller

We have just opened a second week for  "Capturing a Sense of Place" retreat Monday September 25- Monday Oct 2, 2023 in Ischia di Castro. 

Explore the incredible beauty of a region that that many tourists never see in the Medieval town of Ischia di Castro. Ischia will be the base location of your stay, strategically located to so many fascinating cities, historic sites, and bodies of water. Your ‘hotel room’ will likely be an apartment in part of a 16th Century palace. We will be using the entire medieval center as your hotel. Ischia di Castro is rich in history, restaurants, and architecture. 


Judy Gula of Artistic Artifacts and Liz Kettle are returning to Ischia di Castro in 2023 for a fabulous week of art and culture immersion. We spend part of each day immsersed in making art, capturing the essence and life of the area. With Ischia as our base, we explore incredible art and cultural attractions of the area that aren't on the traditional tour circuit to discover a deeper sense of place.
