Faculty Information: Nicole Durand, a veteran sculptor with over 30 years experience, is a world famous artist and founder of the Accademia on the  Italian Riviera. She offers sculpture workshops in Italy and Greece as well as artist residencies. Her outdoor working studio and gallery overlooks the  Mediterranean in a paradise called Mortola at the border of the French Riviera.

Nicole exhibits in many museums and art galleries nationally and internationally. She is also a well known teacher of sculpture in art schools next to Monaco,  Switzerland and of course in Italy where she lives and where she founded the Villa d'Arte.

 Studio Rental: If you are an experienced artist you may just want to enjoy the facilities of the Art Centre as a place to paint or sculpt  independently without the help of a tutor.  You are welcome to come and stay at the art-center and use the sculpture studio  and terrace or the painting studios.  You can come, if there is space, during a course when there will be half board options  

available or you can self-cater if there are no courses running.
