A week of printmaking in Abruzzo—amazing, energizing, exciting, exhausting, invigorating, inspiring—and that's without using a thesaurus! My week at the Dedalo Center for Contemporary Art in the village of Castiglione a Casauria with Colleen Corradi Brannigan, a master printmaker, teacher and artist, was more than I ever dreamed of. We worked hard under Colleen's instruction and guidance, learning many types of printmaking in her fully furnished studio. Inspiration was everywhere, there was always something new to surprise me, from art to relics to nature. The fresh, local food was delicious, the accommodation modern and comfortable. I loved the afternoon of excursions into the mountains to see a medieval castle, church, chapel and village that few visitors to Italy ever get to see. All in all, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this course and experience to anyone with even a slight interest in learning about printmaking.

I just got back from an intensive week in Printmaking with Artist/Teacher Colleen Corradi Brannigan at the Dedalo Art Center in Italy. My experience exceeded my expectations. The room I stayed in was comfortable and cozy. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner, what can I say, “Food, Glorious, Food.” Everything DELIZIOSO!!! Colleen was extremely knowledgeable. She was able to convey information with patience to first time printmakers. With hard work, I was able to finish prints, I was proud of. My experience was positive. I would recommend this class to anyone.

I would recommend this course to anyone! Everything about my experience was fantastic! The setting was beautiful and incredibly safe. Colleen and her family were warm and welcoming. As an educator, Colleen is very knowledgeable, patient and extremely talented. I learned valuable skills that I will continue exploring in my own artwork, as well as new techniques that I will incorporate into my elementary art classroom. Meals were prepared by Colleen's family and help, everything I tried was delicious! I went expecting to create art, and left with 6 new friends and so much more.

I just returned fron a wonderful 7-Day experience at the Arts Center in Abruzzo. Colleen is a very knowledgeable and fabulous teacher. The room accommodations was not only beautiful but also inspiring. The meals were simply outstanding with most coming from local farmers or right from her garden. If you would like an wonderful artist excursion whether you are a beginner or an experienced artist you will thoroughly enjoy the Art Center.

I have just returned from a fabulous week of printmaking with Colleen in the beautiful area of Abruzzo. It was a tightly packed schedule of etching (hard and soft ground, aquatint, sugarlift), monotype, monoprint, linocut and collagraph and catered for all levels of experience. Colleen is a talented, knowledgeable and patient teacher who provided lots of support and encouragement. Aside from the printmaking we were well fed and watered, had comfortable, air-conditioned rooms and were taken on a sightseeing trip (the medieval church at Bominaco, Rocca Calasco, Santo Stefano di Sessanio). The group was great, they were all really friendly and we had such fun together. I would definitely recommend a course at Dedalo, and hope to return someday.
